The aim of the current pedagogical research is to design and then verify in practice a holistic process of individual personalized education with the support of modern information technology. These complex adaptive models of teaching has striven to come as close to the needs and abilities of each student as possible in order to ensure the most efficient and fastest acquisition of required knowledge in the studied field. This paper presents a structure of the adaptive educational system which uses fuzzy expert modules to formalize the decision-making functions of a teacher and includes two adaptive loops which implement the adaptation of study materials according to the student's learning style and knowledge and modify his/her learning procedure.

Keywords: adaptive educational system, learning style, evaluation, study materiál
