In this paper, we give an overview of the hybrid model, which is a generic user model that is based on measuring and classifying users' knowledge with respect to multiple knowledge domains simultaneously. In addition, we demonstrate how that model is implemented through the WHURLE (World Hierarchal Universal Reactive Learning Environment) framework, which is an adaptive educational hypermedia framework where different domains could be involved at the same time to concurrently serve a wide range of users of different educational states and of different abilities and backgrounds. © 2002 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
