Abstract: In this paper, we discuss how users and designers of existing learning management systems (LMSs) can make use of policies to enhance adaptivity and adaptability. Many widespread LMSs currently only use limited and proprietary rule systems defining the system behaviour. Personalization of those systems is done based on those rule systems allowing only for fairly restricted adaptation rules. Policies allow for more sophisticated and flexible adaptation rules, provided by multiple stakeholders and they can be integrated into legacy systems. We present the benefits and feasibility of our ongoing approach of extending an existing LMS with policies. We will use the LMS ILIAS as a hands-on example to allow users to make use of system personalization.
