Abstract

Existing adaptive educational hypermedia systems focus on preparing adaptive educational environments for students and educators meeting their needs. In an educational adaptive hypermedia (AH) application, important problems faced by application developers (educators) are to create and update the domain model accurately. This study presents a new reference model and its concept for web-based adaptive educational hypermedia called SAHM (supervised adaptive hypermedia model). The new model redefines the storage layer of existing AH reference models and helps to solve the problems encountered in AH applications. With the help of this proposed model, application developers might develop a domain model of AH applications easily, effectively, and successfully. It is expected that the new SAHM would provide a new direction in designing new and more adaptive systems and new applications. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Comput Appl Eng Educ 21: 60–74, 2013
