Making Web-based Learning Adaptive

Ng, M.H, Maier, P.J., Armstrong, R. and Hall, W. (2002) Making Web-based Learning Adaptive At ED-MEDIA 2002, World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia & Telecommunication, United States. 24 - 29 Jun 2002. 6 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


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.
