Personalization is one of the important functions of modern Learning Management Systems. The basic idea of personalization in education is an incorporation of the person’s individual characteristics. This thesis is directed to study the main aspects of personalization and how personalization can be applied in LMS, in order to achieve the best results during learning process and make learning more convenient and flexible. The main objective of our study is to identify the personalization approach or a mix of approaches among Personalized Guidance, Personalized Learning Activities and Personalized Communication that can be more useful for inclusion in the LMS. We have found that a mix of Personalized Learning Activities and Personalized Communication Approaches is most useful for inclusion in the LMS. This mix can contribute to solving some of the problems of students, such as the difficulty of access and retrieval of desired educational materials and a communication problem. We have also examined the basis on which these approaches can provide personalization. Based on our research and analysis, we determined that the Personalized Learning Activities Aproach should include features such as: Study topic and Technical level; Personalized Communication Approach should be based on the Study topic.
