A Comparative Study of Visual Cues for Annotation-Based Navigation Support in Adaptive Educational Hypermedia

2016; UMAP; Hosseini, R.; Brusilovsky, P.

Adaptive link annotation is one of the most well-known adaptive navigation support technologies that aims to guide hypermedia users to the most relevant information by personalizing the appearance of hyperlinks. Past work assumed no difference between different interface implementations of personalization approaches that are conceptually the same. The goal of the current study was to determine whether the choice of visual cues does matter by conducting a user study with several alternative designs for link annotation in interactive code examples.
