Abstract:Most of the suggested reference models for Adaptive Hypermedia (AH) systems lack the capability to share their user models. The present paper proposes a reference model having two user models in AH systems – an integral one with domain dependent characteristics and another 'Shared User Model'(SUM) with domain independent characteristics. For adaptation purposes, adaptation rules for SUM are stored in 'Shared Adaptation Model' (SAM). Both SUM and SAM together form the 'Shared Module'(SM) that is common among AH systems thus providing the benefits of initialising and updating them with most recent user information, and also enforcing sort of standardisation among them.
