Abstract

This paper presents an approach to the provision of on-line assistance for learners of English as a second language. The basis for this design is the application of directed support in the form of 'dynamic annotation' to English information. Critically, we aim to provide aid where it is likely to be needed most. Our work falls into two parts. Firstly, we have a mechanism that facilitates the dynamic annotation of English content web pages. Secondly, we are investigating the application of criteria to drive the decision-making that underlies such support.
