    The issue of implementing adaptation in a Web-based course using an adaptive lesson presentation (or content-level adaptation) method is a promising direction of research. The goal is to adapt dynamically the supplied educational material so that it meets the individual educational needs of each particular learner. An important aspect in producing a learner-adapted system is the structuring of the domain knowledge in such a way that it will be possible to do adaptations. In this paper, a connectionist-based structure of the domain knowledge model is adopted. This approach allows generating the content of a hypermedia page from pieces of educational material based on a goal-oriented way of teaching and making use of the background knowledge of the learner.
