In this paper, we present the design of a Web-based system for training on Internet technologies. The system will contain a variety of courses starting from introductory topics addressed to beginners and scaling up to more advanced topics. Its distinctive functionality will be its ability to tailor the presentation of the educational topics to the users' diverse needs. This will be accomplished by recording each user's learning model. Key operations of the system will be curriculum sequencing and adaptive navigation support. According to the users' knowledge state the former will adapt the educational subjects' presentation order whereas the latter will adjust the appearance of the pages' hyperlinks. Furthermore, based on the collaborative information filtering method, information regarding updated educational pages mostly interesting the users will be selectively flowed to them.
