Using the Adaptive Support Technique of Link Hiding in an Educational Hypermedia System: An Experimental Study
Mann, Mark David
MetadataShow full item record
This study was conducted to provide new knowledge about adaptive hypermedia systems (AHMS) and the adaptive navigation support technique of link hiding. AHMS have been shown to increase efficiency in time required to work through a series of tasks, and to minimize wandering through an information space. Specific objectives of this research were to identify (a) the significance of the AHMS and the navigation support technique of link hiding to improve posttest performance on the hypertext markup language competency examination (HTMLCE) which measures student proficiency in the hypertext markup language (HTML), and (b) to identify the extent of the significant differences in means between control and experimental groups who participated in differing learning environments in a series of lessons on the subject of HTML.
