This paper presents two empirical usability studies based on techniques from Human-Computer Interaction (HeI) and software engineering, which were used to elicit requirements for the design of a
hypertext generation system. Here we will discuss the findings of these studies, which were used to motivate the choice of adaptivity techniques.
The results showed dependencies between different ways to adapt the explanation content and the document length and formatting. Therefore, the system's architecture had to be modified to cope with this requirement.
In addition, the system had to be made adaptable, in addition to being adaptive, in order to satisfy the elicited users' preferences.
