In spite of the interest in AHS, there are not as many applications as could be expected. We have previously pinpointed the problem to rely on the difficulty of AHS authoring. Adaptive features that have been successfully introduced and implemented until now are often too fine grained, and an author easily loses the overview. This paper introduces a three-layer model and classification method for adaptive techniques: direct adaptation rules, adaptation language and adaptation strategies. The benefits of this model are twofold: on one hand, the granulation level of authoring of adaptive hypermedia can be precisely established, and authors therefore can work at the most suitable level for them. On the other hand, this is a step towards standardization of adaptive techniques, especially by grouping them into a higher-level adaptation language or strategies. In this way, not only adaptive hypermedia authoring, but also adaptive techniques exchange between adaptive applications can be enabled.
