In recent years we have witnessed an increasingly heightened awareness of the potential benefits of adaptively in e-learning. This has been mainly driven by the realization that the ideal of individualized learning (i.e., learning tailored to the specific requirements and preferences of the individual) cannot be achieved, especially at a “massive” scale, using traditional approaches. Although there are many learning style models, theories, and methodology that been used for a long time in education, none of them have adequately covered all learning aspects such as personality, emotional issues, scale differences, and preferences. Many researchers have derived and used some elements from these models in an e-learning system but these seem insufficient to overcome some e-learning difficulties. In e-learning when the learning style of the student is not compatible with the teaching style of the teacher; difficulties in academic achievement can result. Therefore, knowing what is the preferred learning style and favorite study environment supporting emotional intelligence and guaranteeing the success of learning and teaching process, is critical. This paper highlights problems and issues may affect the success of e-learning process. Adaptive prototype system is also presented to overcome problems and improve e-learning environment by adapting to the learner in different aspects.
