The navigational freedom in conventional hypermedia applications leads to comprehension and orientation problems [Nielsen 1990]. Adaptive hypermedia attempts to overcome these problems by adapting the presentation of information and the overall link structure, based on a user model. This paper introduces a framework for adaptive hypermedia systems (AHS). It briefly describes some popular methods and techniques for adaptation. Examples and evaluations of existing AHS are used to illustrate the potential benefits of using adaptation in hypermedia applications.
