The Application and Evaluation of Adaptive Hypermedia Techniques in Web-based Medical Education
Ng, M.H., Hall, W., Maier, P. and Armstrong, R., Conole, Grainne (ed.) (2002) The Application and Evaluation of Adaptive Hypermedia Techniques in Web-based Medical Education. Association for Learning Technology Journal, 10, (3), 19-40.
This article discusses the design issues involved in delivering web-based learning materials. An existing application in the medical domain – JointZone - is used to illustrate how personalization and an interactive environment can be incorporated into web-based learning. This work applies the combination of an adaptive hypermedia, situated learning approach, and hypermedia linking concepts to facilitate online learning. A usability study was carried out on the work described and an evaluation was undertaken to measure the effect of personalization on various learning factors. The evaluation outcome was analyzed subjectively and objectively. The results proved to be contradictory but nevertheless, the work gives new insights into the use of technology to support learning.
