Abstract


In this paper, a new approach for automatic composition of instructional units based on a new variant of Harmony Search Algorithm is proposed. The purpose is to solve curriculum sequencing issue by designing and arranging learning content in a suitable sequence. By suitable sequence we mean a learning sequence that fits learner level and presents the content in a way that conveys its structure to learner. Results show that the proposed approach is promising. For instance, individualized courseware plan are generated “on the spot” carefully considering both students characteristics and subject-matter coherence.
