    The Open University of the Netherlands designed a prototypical Personalised Recommendation System (PRS) and evaluated it in a first experimental field study, attended by around 180 students. The PRS recommends most suitable learning activities to learners, by taking into account their personal profile and the (successful) behavior from other (similar) learners. We used a special kind of collaborative filtering technique, called stereotype filtering, and combined this with an ontology.
