    Abstract

    The need to ensure that e-learning content is accessible to a wide range of individuals means user profiling and adaptability are increasingly important to all academic institutions. This paper outlines the problems associated with inclusive e-learning and the role of user profiles and adaptation services to support personalisation. The paper introduces the framework for an Adaptable Personal Learning Environment (APLE) and explores how one component, the transformation, augmentation and substitution service, can be formally specified using Prolog. This service is closely related to the IMS AccessForAll service and the Prolog specification helps computer scientists, educationalists and developers understand how e-learning content can be adapted to the needs and preferences of a range of users.
