About the Edition

Hypertext/hypermedia systems and user-model-based adaptive systems in the areas of learning and information retrieval have for a long time been considered as two mutually exclusive approaches to information access. Adaptive systems tailor information to the user and may guide the user in the information space to present the most relevant material, taking into account a model of the user"s goals, interests and preferences. Hypermedia systems, on the other hand, are `user neutral": they provide the user with the tools and the freedom to explore an information space by browsing through a complex network of information nodes. Adaptive hypertext and hypermedia systems attempt to bridge the gap between these two approaches. Adaptation of hypermedia systems to each individual user is increasingly needed. With the growing size, complexity and heterogeneity of current hypermedia systems, such as the World Wide Web, it becomes virtually impossible to impose guidelines on authors concerning the overall organization of hypermedia information. The networks therefore become so complex and unstructured that the existing navigational tools are no longer powerful enough to provide orientation on where to search for the needed information. It is also not possible to identify appropriate pre-defined paths or subnets for users with certain goals and knowledge backgrounds since the user community of hypermedia systems is usually quite inhomogeneous. This is particularly true for Web-based applications which are expected to be used by a much greater variety of users than any earlier standalone application. A possible remedy for the negative effects of the traditional `one-size-fits-all" approach in the development of hypermedia systems is to equip them with the ability to adapt to the needs of their individual users. A possible way of achieving adaptivity is by modeling the users and tailoring the system"s interactions to their goals, tasks and interests. In this sense, the notion of adaptive hypertext/hypermedia comes naturally to denote a hypertext or hypermedia system which reflects some features of the user and/or characteristics of his system usage in a user model, and utilizes this model in order to adapt various behavioral aspects of the system to the user. This book is the first comprehensive publication on adaptive hypertext and hypermedia. It is oriented towards researchers and practitioners in the fields of hypertext and hypermedia, information systems, and personalized systems. It is also an important resource for the numerous developers of Web-based applications. The design decisions, adaptation methods, and experience presented in this book are a unique source of ideas and techniques for developing more usable and more intelligent Web-based systems suitable for a great variety of users. The practitioners will find it important that many of the adaptation techniques presented in this book have proved to be efficient and are ready to be used in various applications.

Adaptive Hypermedia (AH) systems are a special type of adaptive systems in the intersection of several research disciplines such as Hypertext, User Modelling (UM), Machine Learning (ML), Information Retrieval (IR), and Human Computer Interaction (HCI).

Adaptive hypertext and hypermedia (adaptive navigation support and adaptive presentation within an existing hypertext network of documents) Dynamic hypertext (employing text generation or other techniques to dynamically create both the hypertext network and the documents within the network as the user requests them).

Hypermedia, on the other hand, is an extension of the term hypertext used in a similar way except it’s not constrained to text elements. In fact, hypermedia contains different media elements or morphologies such as audio, images, video, and still or moving : Sagar Khillar.

In this paper, we investigate how hypertext — in its current node-and-link form — can be augmented by an adaptive, user-model-driven tool.

The potential of adaptive hypertext and hypermedia for teaching and learning has thus yet to be realized. At the same time, the notion of an adaptive system modelled on individual users or even on a class of users makes future exploitaion of the web for educational purposes look very promising.

Adaptable and Adaptive Hypermedia Systems examines both types of new hypermedia systems; discussing the benefits, impacts and implications of both.

This book covers the most current issues in the field, while providing insight into analytical and architectural aspects of the topic. Adaptive hypermedia is a relatively new direction of research on the crossroads of hypermedia and user modeling.

Adaptive hypermedia systems build a model of the goals, preferences and knowledge of each individual user, and use this model throughout the interaction with the user, in order to adapt to the needs of that user.

Adaptive Hypertext & Hypermedia “A contribution to adaptive hypermedia systems are adaptive hyperbooks (Henze, ) which personalize the access to information to the particular needs of users. Adaptive hypermedia (AH) systems build a model of the individual user and apply it for adaptation to that user, for example, to adapt the content of a hypermedia page to the user’s knowledge and.

Adaptive hypermedia uses hypermedia which is adaptive according to a user model. In contrast to linear media, where all users are offered a standard series of hyperlinks, adaptive hypermedia tailors what the user is offered based on a model of the user's goals, preferences and knowledge, thus providing links or content most appropriate to the current user.

What is Hypertext and Hypermedia. Anyone using any sort of online help system (like Macintosh HyperCard or Microsoft Windows Help) will already be familiar with a fundamental component of the Web - Hypertext.

The idea here is that instead of following text in a liner fashion (like a book), you can at many points skip from one place to another, go forward or back, get much more detail on the. The book provides an introductory preface by the volume editors and chapters on information comprehension through hypertext, efficient techniques for adaptive hypermedia, annotaded 3D environments on the Web, user models for customized hypertext, conceptual analysis of hypertext, two-level models of hypertext, the TELLTALE dynamic hypertext environment, hypertext for collaborative.

This book is the first comprehensive publication on adaptive hypertext and hypermedia. It is oriented towards researchers and practitioners in the fields of hypertext and hypermedia, information systems, andpersonalized systems.

It is also an important resource for the numerous developers of Author: P. Brusilovsky. Hypermedia, an extension of the term hypertext, is a nonlinear medium of information that includes graphics, audio, video, plain text and hyperlinks.

This designation contrasts with the broader term multimedia, which may include non-interactive linear presentations as well as hypermedia. Hypertext and hypermedia, are the techniques for linking non-linear information. The two terms are distinct in a manner that the hypertext allows only text to be hyperlinked while hypermedia could use various multimedia elements such as images, audio and video, in order to link the text and media over the World Wide Web.

Hypertext vs Hypermedia The World Wide Web is a part of the internet, the interconnected network of computers which has brought the world closer and perhaps made its boundaries and limits diminish.

The foundation of the world wide web is documents and other media in it which are interconnected through links.

In classic hypermedia (classic hypertext), a link is a fixed address to a page or document. An adaptive hypermedia system tracks the browsing behavior of the user and can change the link to a different Web page or document that is more tailored to the user.process of adaptive hypermedia authoring starting from the early design stage.
