Using Effective Reading Speed to Integrate Adaptivity into Web-based Learning

Using Effective Reading Speed to Integrate Adaptivity into Web-based Learning
It has always been difficult to determine to what extent a user has read a page especially in the area of educational adaptive hypermedia systems. We propose the use of an individual’s effective reading speed to estimate how much of a page a user has read during their browsing activity. This method is currently used to apply history-based link annotation in a medical web-based learning application, JointZone. A validation test of this work has shown a positive result in approximating user’s reading value when compared to conventional methods.

Abstract

It has always been difficult to determine to what extent a user has read a page especially in the area of educational adaptive hypermedia systems. We propose the use of an individual’s effective reading speed to estimate how much of a page a user has read during their browsing activity. This method is currently used to apply history-based link annotation in a medical web-based learning application, JointZone. A validation test of this work has shown a positive result in approximating user’s reading value when compared to conventional methods.
