For facilitating the use of e learning environments by teachers, we have proposed an approach that aid them to propose documents for learners taking in account their preferences and abilities, so allowing the personalization of these environments. This approach combines a pedagogical scenario design approach , using one of most used modelling languages IMS Learning Design (IMSLD), and taxonomy based one which is boosted-CSHTRL (Boosted Cold Start Hybrid Taxonomy Recommender for e Learning), developed to generate recommendation to learners, taking into consideration their preferences and abilities in order to motivate them, and consequently, improve efficiency and increase veracity of learner in the learning situation. © 2011 IEEE.

We investigated the inclusion of Wogonin in β-cyclodextrin using several quantum mechanical models. Among the two considered modes of complexation, both PM3 and ONIOM2 results proved that the lowest energy structure is obtained from 'A' orientation. The most stable geometry presents a partial inclusion of Wogonin with the aromatic ring totally embedded in β-cyclodextrin hydrophobic cavity, while the di-hydroxy methoxy phenyl moiety is protruded out of the secondary rim. The statistical thermodynamic calculations at 1 atm and 298.15 K demonstrated that both in vacuum and in water, the complexation process is exothermic and enthalpically driven. However the nonspontaneous inclusion process in vacuum became spontaneous after explicit solvation of Wogonin:β-cyclodextrin complex in water. Furthermore, the quantification of the donor-acceptor interaction between host and guest molecules is performed via Natural Bond Orbital (NBO) analysis and we deduced that the main driving force stabilizing the inclusion complex are van der Waals interactions with a very weak contribution of hydrogen bonding, better estimated by the M05-2X and WB97X-D methods. Finally, 1H Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) chemical shifts of free and complexed Wogonin were calculated by the Gauge-Including Atomic Orbital (GIAO) method and compared with available experimental data. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
