Advances in technology are increasingly impacting the way in which curriculum is delivered and assessed. The emergence of the Internet has offered learners a new instructional delivery system that connects them with educational resources. "Advances in Web-Based Education: Personalized Learning Environments" covers a wide range of factors that influence the design, use and adoption of personalized learning environments, and it shows how user and pedagogical considerations can be integrated into the design, development and implementation of adaptive hypermedia systems to create effective personalized learning environments. Chapters of this book include: (1) Gender Differences and Hypermedia Navigation (Jing Fan and Robert Macredie); (2) Modeling Learner's Cognitive Abilities in the Context of a Web-Based Learning Environment (Maria Souto and Regina Verdin); (3) Dominant Meanings Approach towards Individualized Web Search for Learning Environments (Mohammed Razek, Claude Frasson, and Marc Kaltenbach); (4) An Adaptive Predictive Model for Student Modeling (Gladys Castillo, Joao Gama, and Ana Breda); (5) Giving Learners a Real Sense of Control Over Adaptivity, Even If They Are Not Quite Ready For It Yet (Marek Czarkowski and Judy Kay); (6) Building an Instructional Framework to Support Learner Control in Adaptive Educational Systems (Kyparisia Papanikolaou and Maria Grigoriadou); (7) Bridging the Gap with MAID (Jacopo Armani and Luca Botturi); (8) An Adaptive Feedback Framework to Support Reflection, Guiding and Tutoring (Evangelia Gouli, Agoritsa Gogoulou, Kyparisia Papanikolaou, and Maria Grigoriadou); (9) Adaptable Navigation in a SCORM Compliant Learning Module (Boris Gauss and Boris Urbas); (10) Authoring of Adaptive Hypermedia (A. Cristea and Craig Stewart); (11) Authoring of Adaptive Hypermedia Courseware Using AHyCO System (Natasa Hoic-Bozic and Vedran Mornar); (12) TEXT-COL (Anders Broberg); (13) From Non-Adaptive to Adaptive Educational Hypermedia (Michael Jacobson); and (14) Contextualized Learning (Marcus Specht).
