According to literature, a lot of research work on adaptive e-learning was carried out and, insofar, many systems in this application domain were developed in the last decades. One solution approach within the scope of adaptive educational hypermedia is the project AdeLE (Adaptive e-Learning with Eye-Tracking), started at the end of the year 2003 and with the scientific focus on combining adaptive e-learning techniques with eye-tracking technology. After two years of research and development we present the current status of the adaptive e-learning environment realised so far. Thus, this paper sums up relevant publications concerning the AdeLE system, highlights the overall prototype as well as each subsystem and points out our experiences gained within the first phase of the project.
