In the last decade the evolution of information technologies caused an increasing interest in adaptive environments, especially for educational purposes. There is a need for new methods for delivering information content to users. To increase efficiency, the information should be adapted dependent on the user preferences and needs. To enable interchange of the user preferences among systems and reusability of the information content, the data needs to be machine-understandable. We have proposed a model for adaptive system, which is based on ontologies and allows the storing of semantics within the data. The principle of information adaptation is one of main research perspectives for e-learning. Even though the e learning environment is sufficient for experiments, the model should be general and applicable as a universal adaptation framework.
