 In this paper, we present an innovative solution to improve adaptivity in an e-learning system using Brain Computer Interface (BCI) measures (Attention/Meditation) in order to detect changes in students’ preferred perceptual modes for learning information (VARK model). Our solution is also able to report course units and learning resources that could be difficult for the students.
