The rapid advancement of the World Wide Web and hypermedia systems puts educators more and more under pressure to provide some of their course material on the web. But given the time constraints of the faculty and the necessary skills in electronic media production, it cannot be expected that many useful systems will be built and used by them. Most available systems support a great deal of activity that goes into the development of an electronically enhanced course with features which support testing, interfacing with other university-based systems, tracking of students, assignments, chat rooms and some instruction. However, explicit support for the development of a web-based environment for learning is rare at best. One of the exceptions is an adaptive hypermedia system provide navigation support that adapts to the user's action and learning (Brusilowski et al., 1997). However, the provided navigation space tends to constrain the learner's possibilities for exploration. Our system attempts to provide hypermedia sites that minimize such constraints on exploration, yet still providing a flexible site structure optimized for the used teaching method. A possibly radically different site structure is necessary to support various teaching methodologies. But who creates all the web pages for the courses and keeps them also up-to-date? And how do we make sure that the students exploring the site don't get lost and frustrated instead of learn from them?
