Abstract: Nowadays, technology-enhanced learning systems must have the ability to reuse learning resources from distributed repositories, to be context-aware, adaptive and based on substantial advances in pedagogical theories and knowledge models. We focus on learning systems using a problem-based learning approach represented by scenarios. Our main contribution is a semantic and didactic-based model of scenarios for designing an adaptive and context-aware learning System. The scenario model is acquired from: i) the know-how and real practices of teachers (inquiry based science teaching); ii) the theory in didactic anthropology of knowledge of Chevallard; iii) a hierarchical task model.

Keywords: adaptive learning; context-aware learning; didactical environment; scenario models; hierarchical task model; task-method paradigm; authoring tools; enquiry-based science teaching; EBST; didactics anthropology; learning resources; resource reuse; technology-enhanced learning; distributed repositories; semantics.
