Learning Management Systems such as Blackboard, Moodle, Sakai and Claroline focus on supporting the learning process at a fairly global level of courses and tests. Recent additions focus on interaction (discussion forums, chat rooms and wikis). GRAPPLE tackles an important omission: integrating the adaptive delivery of course material into the supported learning process. GRAPPLE is an EU funded IST FP7 project that brings together a group of researchers into adaptive learning technology and environments and developers of learning management systems (LMSs), in order to offer adaptive learning as a standard feature of future LMSs. This paper presents the overall architecture of GRAPPLE, and then describes how to create and deliver adaptive course material through GRAPPLE, on any (supported) LMS.
