In a web-based learning environment, student-centered study plan become critical since the target users who have the self-learning expectation and individual academic background are very different from those of a traditional classroom. In fact, designing individual study plan is very complicated and time consuming as the target users normally are very diversified. To the best knowledge of our understanding, most of existing course enrollment facilities are quite primitive. In this paper, we introduce a conceptual framework for setting up individual student-centered study plan through 1) a dynamic conceptual network mechanism for capturing the relationships among courses to facilitate the dynamic generation of a study plan, and 2) intelligent knowledge base facilities, such as personal profiles, to help understand students' behavior so as to provide student-centered results to different learning groups.
