Abstract: Learning is one of the most interesting applications of internet-based systems. At present, several approaches are being carried out in order to make this process adaptive. In this context, ||adaptivity|| mainly refers to adapting the instructional material to different students under certain conditions: i) the instructional material is available as a whole and ii) potential students can be essentially different. Moreover, it is not possible to talk about ||adaptivity|| whenever a complete set of courses about the same subject is available; each is designed for a specific student profile. In this framework, the TANGOW system aims to provide a model in which most of the desirable features of internet-based learning processes are taken into account. TANGOW stands for Task-based Adaptive learNer Guidance On the WWW.

Keywords: adaptive hypermedia; web-based training; educational multimedia.
