The increasing attention paid to the importance of context-awareness of content has contributed to more useable e-learning websites. While existing approaches mostly cover static learner characteristics, to date it has been difficult to cover the dynamics of context. E-learning content must be delivered in the right doses, at the right moment, and in an appropriate form. Our work presents a storyboarding-based approach for specifying content-intensive websites. E-learning sites can be validated with regard to learner context. The practicability of our method is shown upon the e-learning project DaMiT. The SiteLang methodology helps overcome the limitations of existing approaches based on pre-defined, structuring of content. It allows a flexible content generation upon learner context, depending on the dynamics of the learning process.
