This work stems from a project funded by the Arthritis Research Campaign
(ARC) to develop a web site, JointZoneã, for the study of Rheumatology for both
undergraduate medical students and practicing doctors. The educational application
incorporates both declarative and procedural knowledge, providing students with a
chance to acquire knowledge on rheumatic disorders as well as develop clinical reasoning
skills through a series of graded case studies. In order to enhance learning and reduce
cognitive overload, which can be associated with hypermedia environments, adaptive
hypermedia techniques (Brusilovsky 2001) have been integrated into the core of a web-based
learning environment. This paper discusses the adaptive features employed and the
pedagogical rationale involved in developing the web site.
