Our research studies the impact of different adaptive learning strategies on improving students study behavior. We have developed an e-learning software system that assists students to improve their study behavior from two different perspectives. In both of the perspectives, our e-learning system has different functionalities and implements different adaptive learning techniques. In the first approach, e-learning software system uses mobile app that through automatic reminders and different screen widgets, persuades the students to stay in touch with study and keep themselves up to date about different class activities. In the second approach, e-learning system uses automated web based SMS application for automatically sending timely and related messages to different students in order to keep them aware of their study progress and different class activities. Both approaches were thoroughly tested on undergraduate students and at the end interesting results were revealed about different adaptive and persuasive techniques that would help educationalist and software engineers in streamlining the process of mobile learning in future.
