Adaptive hypertext is one of the areas in which there has already been much deployed work. We are working on scrutably adaptive hypertext systems.

These focus aspects like:

  • supporting authors in building such documents;
  • supporting users in seeing what has been adapted to them;
  • exploring the learning impact of such scrutability.
Tutor3 - Marek Czarkowski's thesis work, exploring who we might make adaptive hypertext scrutable;
Serena Potts cellerator-portal based scrutable adaptive hypertext, combining the ideas and experiences of Tutor into a portal-based implementation that extends the user modelling with PersonisLite user models;
Simprac, Doug Chesher's simulation learning environment for management of chronic illness with the user model, in considerable detail, is used to support reflective learning.
Assess, which has been the work of several students, to support reflection by asking the learner to explicitly assess their own and system-supplied solutions to programming problems.

US Patent 761566 Customization of network documents by accessing customization information on a server computer using unique user identifiers,
Inventors: Isaac; Steven A. (Bellevue, WA); Grossman; Mark B. (Kirkland, WA); Critchfield; Ron E. (Redmond, WA); Tuchen; Michael H. (Seattle, WA); Gwertzman; James S. (Seattle, WA); McDaniel; Paul A. (Bellevue, WA)
Assignee: Microsoft Corporation (Redmond, WA)
Abstract: User-selected customization information for a network (e.g., HTML) document is stored at a server with reference to user identifying information that uniquely identifies the user. Whenever the user navigates back to the network address of the HTML document, the user is identified automatically and receives a customized HTML document formed in accordance with the customization information.
