Peter Brusilovsky, Adaptive hypermedia, BGSU, November 30th

The BGSU Computer Science Department, New Media and Emerging Technology Initiative, and College of Technology are hosting a visiting scholar, Dr. Peter Brusilovsky, one of the foremost experts in adaptive hypertext. We would be very pleased if you could join us on Thursday, 11/30 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in Room 208 of the Student Union (the BGSU Family room just off the Bowling Greenery) for lunch and discussion.

Peter Brusilovsky has been working in the area of information technology for 15 years. Since 1993 he has participated in the development of several adaptive Web-based instructional systems including ELM-ART and InterBook. Adaptive hypermedia is an extension of hypertext that includes graphics, animation, audio, and video. It engages students in the learning process and enables them to fully control and collaborate in the educational process and access broader arrays of information. Ex: video-conferencing. Later Dr. Brusilovsky was involved in developing practical Web-based courses and systems as a Director of Computer Managed Instruction at Carnegie Technology Education. Currently he continues his research on adaptive Web-based instructional systems, adaptive hypermedia, and user modeling as a professor of Information Science and Intelligent systems at the University of Pittsburgh.
