Research at the University of Southampton has extended generalised Open Hypermedia (OH) models to include concepts of context and behaviour, both traditionally very important to the Adaptive Hypermedia (AH) domain. In this paper we re-evaluate Brusilovsky's pragmatic taxonomy of AH techniques from a structural perspective. A variety of OH structures are(More)
A digital library, together with its users and its contents, does not exist in isolated splendour; nor in hypertext terms is it merely the intertextual relationships between its texts. There is a cycle of activities which provides the context for the library's existence, and which the library supports through its various roles of information access,(More)
In today's adaptive hypermedia systems, adaptivity is provided based on accumulative data gained from observing the user. User modelling, the capturing of information about the user such as their knowledge, tasks, attitudes, interests etc., is only a small part of the global context in which the user is working. At Southampton University we have formed a(More)
The paper reports on the FREMA (Framework Reference Model for Assessment) project that aims at creating a Reference Model for the Assessment Domain and delivering it via a heavily interlinked Web site. Because the resulting network of resources (standards, projects, people, organisations, software, services and use cases) is so complex, we require a method(More)
The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) develop and maintain guidelines for making the web more accessible to people with disabilities. WCAG 2.0 and the MWBP 1.0 are internationally regarded as the industry standard guidelines for web accessibility. Mobile testing sessions conducted by AbilityNet document issues raised(More)
OBJECTIVE OpenMRS (www.openmrs.org) is a configurable open source electronic medical record application developed and maintained by a large network of open source developers coordinated by the Regenstrief Institute and Partners in Health and mainly used for HIV patient and treatment information management in Africa. Our objective is to develop an open(More)
BACKGROUND The scale-up of treatment for HIV and multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in developing countries requires a long-term relationship with the patient, accurate and accessible records of each patient's history, and methods to track his/her progress. Recent studies have shown up to 24% loss to follow-up of HIV patients in Africa during(More)
BACKGROUND It is estimated that one million people infected with HIV initiate anti-retroviral therapy (ART) in resource-constrained countries annually. This occurs against a background of overburdened health workers with limited skills to handle rapidly changing treatment standards and guidelines hence compromising quality of care. Electronic medical record(More)
Concept or Topic Maps have long been used as a method of categorizing and organizing information about a domain. Building them can help people conceptualize an area and spot trends or gaps, and as a presentation method they quickly provide an overview and general impression of a space. We are currently constructing a Reference Model of the Assessment Domain(More)
The research area of adaptive hypermedia originates from the coming together of the areas of hypertext and hypermedia, user modeling and Web-based information systems, all of which have embraced the topic of adaptation. Under different names workshops have been organized, mainly at the world Wide Web Adaptive Web-Based Systems provides a forum for(More)
