The paper describes an ontology-based approach for integrating interactive user modeling and learning content management to deal with typical adaptation problems, such as cold start and dynamics of the user’s knowledge, in the context of the Semantic Web. An integrated OntoAIMS system is presented and its viability discussed based on user studies. The work demonstrates some novel aspects, such as (a) ontological approach for integration of methods for eliciting and utilizing of user models; (b) improved adaptation functionality resulted from that integration, validated with real users; (c) support of interoperability and reusability of adaptive components.
