Abstract: This dissertation project reviewed some of the approaches and development in the area of adaptive hypermedia guidance courseware and introduced the design and development of a Self-paced and Adaptive Courseware (SAC) system in an attempt to develop an interactive and learning system that is able to individualize a student's learning style using adaptive link guidance approach. The system has been designed and implemented on a three-tier web application architecture, which uses the AHAM [15] to structure the domain, user and teaching model for use by the adaptation engine. The design and implementation of the courseware highlighted the concept of adaptive learning by providing dynamic navigational guidance to students taking online courses. This is in contrast with most existing courseware systems, whose focus is on pure information delivery, which often leads to information disorientation and confusion for learners.
