Abstract: Adaptive Educational Hypermedia System is an alternative to the "one-size-fits-all" approach to web-based learning. It aims at enhancing e-learning experience with adaptive capabilities to accommodate for the different learning preference and learning aptitude of individual learner. In this dissertation, the ontology-based approach is used in the design and development of an adaptive hypermedia e-learning system. Learners with different learning goals, background and learning aptitudes are treated differently by building a model of knowledge and preferences for each of them. We developed a personalized e-learning framework to provide a basic Java programming course that allows students to learn on his/her own pace, with adaptive features including adaptive course presentation, recommendations and adaptive curriculum sequencing according to the student's learning preference and learning progress. The ontology-based approach ensures that the learner's profile and the learning objects can be shareable and interoperable in heterogeneous systems. Our system evaluation has shown that learning basic Java programming in this e-learning framework can be appreciated by most college students but not high school students who do not have online learning experience.
