Abstract

The aim of this paper is to produce an alternative view of the Adaptive Hypermedia (AH) domain from a contextually aware Open Hypermedia (OH) perspective. We believe that a wide range of AH techniques can be supported with a small number of OH structures, which can be combined together to create more complex effects and could simplify the development of new AH systems. In this paper we re-examine Brusilovsky’s taxonomy of AH techniques from a structural perspective. The authors show that it is possible to identify and model common structures across the taxonomy of Adaptive techniques. An agent based adaptive hypermedia system called HA3L is presented, which uses these OH structures to provide a straightforward implementation of a variety of adaptive hypermedia techniques. This enables us to reflect on the structural equivalence of many of the techniques, demonstrate the advantages of the OH approach and can inform the design of future adaptive hypermedia systems.
