IMS LD supports the design of personalized learning by adapting activities and other process elements to personal characteristics. This paper presents a new idea to adjust activities and elements to group characteristics for supporting 'groupalized' or group-adapted learning. This may help to improve effectiveness and efficiency of group-based collaborative learning. Our approach to formalize adaptive learning designs for groupalization is based on an extension of IMS LD. As a first “proof of concept”, a fully implemented prototype system is presented.
