Abstract. Recently, the systems of e-learning are improved technologically and the led to the emergence of e-learning systems that reached the level of adaptation to students. Through which, it changed the entire education system during the Internet era. Nonetheless, the use of rule-based, assumption-based, and network-based method have some vital methodologies used to implement learner models across adaptive learning systems. The so common way to structure the learner models approaches rely on the personalization and user modelling. However, personalization and user modeling found out to be the best approaches-not only in developing students' talents but also in allowing students to take their own learning direction and making sure that they are using their potential to the fullest. The mismatching in viewpoints and perceptions between teachers and technicians along with a lack of appropriate technical knowledge have been identified as some of the major challenges affecting the learner model development. the main objective of this article is to show the use of different approaches through the recent scholars’ in implementing learner models within adaptive e-learning systems. Moreover, approaches and challenges in implementing learner models are also described
