Abstract

Effective notes taking is an important link to the learning chain. In this paper, we present an Online Notes-taker intended to design and deliver personalized course notes for individual students. The notes contents can be organized based on the user profiles such as learning styles, study plan and assessment result. The characteristics of this approach are to provide better supports to the concept mapping, learning styles, content-based, and interactive learning environment. The system is running on the Internet with XML and SMIL, following an agent-based approach.
