Abstract—E-learning can be truly effective when it provides a learner centric adaptive learning experience. To meet the requirement of adaptive learning experience many adaptive learning systems are developed. There has been research on various modules of the adaptive e-learning system such as ontology, student model and different information retrieval techniques for adaptive delivery of learning resources. This paper presents the architecture of an adaptive e-learning system and the review of the work done in the area of ontology, student modelling and the available adaptive systems.
