Abstract

This paper presents early work tackling the problem of developing Mixed Initiative Educational Web Interfaces for English language learning courses that require the adaptation of their contents to different student profiles. The problem is partially solved through a user centered methodology, with our paper focusing on the results of a visual-contextual ethnographic analysis which helped us to identify the user requirements and improve the interactivity, usability and appearance of the interfaces toward developing a true Mixed Initiative system.
