Finding the appropriate personalized learning resources is a difficult process for users and learners on the web. Artificial Neural Networks show a great significance in helping users in personalizing their own learning interests from a large number of resources by giving suggestions to users and learners based on their preferences and all of this with less time and effort. This paper discusses the importance of using neural networks in E-Learning personalization and shows some current applications of them with their improvements and limitations.
