  abstract =     "This paper describes the use of data mining methods in
                 an e-learning system for providing feedback to
                 courseware authors.

                 The discovered information is presented in the form of
                 prediction rules since these are highly comprehensible
                 and they show important relationships among the
                 presented data.

                 The rules will be used to improve courseware,
                 particularly Adaptive Systems for Web-based Education
                 (ASWE). We propose to use evolutionary algorithms as
                 the rule discovery methods, concretely Grammar-Based
                 Genetic Programming (GBGP) with multi-objective
                 optimisation techniques. We have developed a specific
                 tool named EPRules (Education Prediction Rules) to
                 facilitate and simplify the knowledge discovery process
                 for usage data in web-based education systems.",
