A Hybrid Aproach to Dynamic Course Generation on the WWW
In recent years, hypermedia has been grown in interest in advanced research on teaching and learning. Futhermore, the extension of hypermedia toward intelligent hypermedia comes more than obviously to meet specific requirements of learning, such as the student modeling, diagnosis and guiding the learner in his investigation. In this paper, we present an architecture for a system based on integrating hypermedia system and intelligent knowledge based system. The object formalism is chosen to represent static and predefined knowledge, whereas the rule formalism is chosen for dynamic knowledge and reasoning processes modeling. The knowledge base can be described by three models of expertise: the domain model, the student model and the didactic model (including the communication model). This architecture allows automatic generation of dynamically individualized courses according to the learner's goal, his or her previous knowledge and the learner's success in acquiring knowlede.
