This chapter attempts to untangle the relationships between personalized guidance and domain modeling, as well as to explain how domain modeling could be used to provide personalized guidance. The problem of personalized guidance has a long history in the area of adaptive educational systems (AES). In fact, the very first recognized AES SCHOLAR (Carbonell, 1970) focused on guiding students to the most relevant facts and questions about the geography of South America. The SCHOLAR functionality was based on a domain model in the form of a semantic network and an overlay student model. Since that time, a considerable share of research in the field of AES has focused on different kinds of personalized guidance, and the majority of this work relied heavily on domain modeling—which makes these two research directions heavily interconnected.
