The Computer Aided Information Navigation project provides a new method of adaptive navigation support which aims to increase the World Wide Web's value as a pedagogical tool. This work approaches adaptive hypertext systems, metadata, computer supported co-operative work and recommender systems. The project extends and combines work from these areas in a new way to support learning and initial research tasks by facilitating the navigation process, providing a Rough Guide-like weak hypertext linearization which enables the user to follow a ranked sequence of selected, context specific, World Wide Web pages. This is accomplished by regarding information available on the World Wide Web as an open corpus upon which a new specialized structure is superimposed which provides for a collaboratively built partial representation of the World Wide Web's information space and which also provides a mean of representing user attributes.
