In the context of distance learning, Adaptive Web-based Educational System focus on personalization and adaptation, that is on “learner’s satisfaction”. In this paper we address the other side of the coin, that is the "teacher’s satisfaction" problem, which is quite seldom taken into account in educational systems. We present a new version of the Lecomps5 Web-based Educational System, a system capable of providing personalization and adaptation on the basis of learner’s knowledge, learning styles and learning progresses. In this new version, a framework provides the teacher with an easy and flexible tool for managing learning material, expressing different didactic strategies and sequencing personalized courses by means of an embedded planner. Such functionalities are supported by the system basing on evaluations of learner’s knowledge, learning styles, and learning progresses. We report on a first controlled experiment, we made to evaluate the “teacher’s satisfaction”.
