Abstract

Research papers about adaptive hypermedia systems, frameworks or applications tend to focus on the end-result: how the applications are used by end-users, how adaptation improves user satisfaction, learning, etc. What they do not describe is how difficult and labor-intensive the creation of the applications can be. In this paper we present ALAT, a new authoring tool for the Generic Adaptation Language and Engine GALE, developed at the TU/e. ALAT is specifically designed in close collaboration with an educational software company to ensure that specifying the desired adaptation can be done by non-technical authors. This is achieved by combining a simple responsive authoring-interface with underlying templates that help generate the adaptation code for GALE.
