RATH version 0.1 is a prototype for a Relational
Adaptive Tutoring Hypertext WWW-Environment. It is based on
three sources: a mathematical model of hypertext developed
by Albert, Hockemeyer and Held; the relational database theory
originally developed by Codd; and a correspondence (mentioned
by Albert and Hockemeyer) between the mathematical hypertext
model and knowledge space theory (originally developed by
Doignon and Falmagne).
The prototype combines advanced WWW technology
and the Oracle relational database system. It was developed
by Cord Hockemeyer (in cooperation with Dietrich Albert).
Developing the underlying ideas and the prototype itself was
supported by DGXII at the European Commission by Grant ERBCHBICT941599
(HCM Research Fellowship) and by the University of Graz, Austria.
The prototype's features are illustrated by
a course in elementary probability theory.
