In this paper, we define adaptive instruction, or Ad-In, as applied to sophisticated skills development systems that target learning and assessment in a highly individualized and interactive manner. We argue that the successful design and use of such systems rely heavily upon the interrelationships among learning styles, instructional theories, and assessment methods, in the context of personalized learning. We outline and structure the links among these topics by drawing upon recent empirical studies of virtual environments and augmented realities. The paper also presents a candidate architecture for applying Ad-In concepts in an intelligent interactive environment for skills development.
