Abstract: The ever-zooming issue of personalisation in the domain of the e-learning or the adaptive e-learning has emerged as a hot subject of intriguing debate among the inquisitive investigators in the last few years. In the learning contents module, all the critical learning materials in the shape of text, video or audio are collected and saved by means of the data management approach so as to effectively orchestrate the entire learning material. In the profile ontology module, the learner profile is saved as the ontology with a clear-cut framework and data. The Markov model is also utilised in this regard. In the instructor module, the online tutoring for each and every learner in accordance with the protocol devised by means of the captioned techniques is carried out. The execution is performed through the JAVA programming and protégé device and the performance is subjected to assessment.

Keywords: e-learning; prefix-span algorithms; graphical user interface; GUI; dataset description; personalised learning; personalisation; learner profile ontology; sequential pattern mining; data mining; recommendation systems; recommender systems; electronic learning; online learning.
