In an era where social turbulence is intense, the role of technology is crucial in training disadvantaged groups through non-formal education, which supports lifelong e-learning. Taking this context into account, we have developed a distance learning course in LMS (Learning Management System) Moodle, addressing the concepts of Mass and Weight in physics and encompassing the concepts of adaptivity and adaptability. This paper consists of a threefold focus. Firstly, we present the design process of the course, which expresses the phases of Inquiry-based Learning through Kalantzis & Cope’s Learning by Design framework, integrating tasks based on the revised model of Laurillard’s conversational framework. Secondly, we describe the scheme of adaptivity and adaptability concerning the learner’s knowledge level and learning style, as articulated by Kolb in his LSI (Learning Style Inventory) model. The final focus point of this paper discusses the findings of our pilot research, in which three teachers (two experienced in non-formal learning and one in distance learning) evaluated the course, as a part of the Design Research we conducted.
