Adaptive navigation support (ANS) is a new direction of research within the area of adaptive interfaces. The goal of ANS techniques is to help users find an appropriate path in the learning and information space by adapting link presentation to the goals, knowledge, and other characteristics of an individual user. This paper is devoted to evaluation of… (More)
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.
Web-based Intelligent Design and Tutoring System (WINDS) is a European project 1 with the objective to implement a learning environment integrating an intelligent tutoring system, a computer instruction management system and a set of cooperative tools. This environment will be used to build a large knowledge base supporting Architecture and Civil… (More)
This paper describes assessment features of the Adaptive Learning Environment (ALE) for web-based authoring and learning. ALE provides a reach set of tools for assessment of students: various types of tests, exercises, quizzes and questionnaires. The system offers flexible way of their authoring, presentation and results tracking.
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.
The paper presents a tool for the management of different metadata standards and for the efficient creation of metadata for learning object in the Adaptive Learning Environment. The Flexible Metadata Framework uses inheritance and inference on learning object metadata to support authors in the easy creation of metadata sets. Furthermore is enable… (More)
