    Abstract

    This chapter describes recent and ongoing research to automatically personalize a learning experience through adaptive educational hypermedia. The Web has made it possible to give a very large audience access to the same learning material. Rather than offering several versions of learning material about a certain subject, for different types of learners, adaptive educational hypermedia offers personalized learning material without the need to know a detailed classification of users before starting the learning process. We describe different approaches to making a learning experience personalized, all using adaptive hypermedia technology. We include research on authoring for adaptive learning material (the AIMS and MOT projects) and research on modeling adaptive educational applications (the LAOS project). We also cover some of our ongoing work on the AHA! system, which has been used mostly for educational hypermedia but has the potential to be used in very different application areas as well.
