This article proposes a recommendation algorithm for educational resources in e-learning systems. The new approach uses Markov's model of evaluating the systems` content by casual users to form the parameters of the initial state, which characterizes a new user of the system as evaluations of the first resources (system content) to recommend interesting system elements for an active user. Thus, the problem of "cold-start" for the new users at the first phase of interaction with the system is solved. This problem is inherent in the system under development because the e-learning system includes a module for making recommendations, which allows it to refer to the class of recommendation-based automated systems. The new approach will combine the Markov process usage and the time factor to use them as a single data source for making recommendations. This approach will be based on the principle of access analysis of similar system users (the similarity is determined by comparing their profiles) in the same periods. An integral part of the created system is also usability. Therefore, at the design phase, it is necessary to think about the ergonomics of the recommendations in the educational system.
