In this paper we present our e-learning approach and describe the technical and instructional design of an adaptive learning environment. In order to avoid several reasons for distrust or frustration on the learner’s side, we developed an approach called configurable adaptation including the concept of individualized and adaptive learning paths. In cases where a course is offered in various (media) forms, the learner should be able to decide on its own, which one to use for the acquirement of the learning material. We demonstrate different approaches for a holistic learning experience using several learning scenarios like classroom participation and e-learning in a virtual learning environment. A special focus will be set on the description of the didactical paradigm synchronized blended learning, which allows the combination of different learning scenarios and the usage of learning material within all settings. Furthermore, we demonstrate examples how a (virtual) learning environment can be integrated into the course allowing dynamic and adaptive presentation of learning material as well as the direct inclusion of new – generated by algorithms or written by the learner or tutor – content on-the-fly.
