Visual annotation of links is a new technique for adaptive navigation support in adaptive educational hypermedia. This paper explains briefly this technique and reports preliminary experimental results of its evaluation. The results show that adaptive visual annotation is helpful and can reduce user floundering in hyperspace.
In the WINDS project we have developed the ALE learning management system to support Architecture and Civil Engineering Design Courses. The ALE system integrates the functionality of an e-Learning system with adaptive educational hypermedia on the Web. Our plan is to further develop the system towards mobile learning in the new RAFT project.
