Collaboration scripts are didactic scenarios that guide and support groups of learners in collaborative learning. Adaptive collaboration scripting is the idea that collaboration scripts can be adapted during run time in several of their aspects, to provide learning experiences tailored to individual and group characteristics. In order to build systems that support this type of adaptation, one needs to implement adaptation models that consider both the user characteristics (at individual and/or group level) and the script features. Especially for the latter, it is important to distinguish between ldquointrinsicrdquo and ldquoextrinsicrdquo aspects of the script, identifying what aspects should be considered as non-adaptable core script features and what aspects are negotiable and adaptable. Within this context, the scope of this work is twofold: (a) to provide an introductory conceptual framework for adaptive collaboration scripting, and (b) to present a case study on the design of a Web-based system for supporting the adaptive operation of a ldquopyramidrdquo type collaboration script.
