We present SVAEC, a visual adaptive environment to assist students, professors and researchers in their knowledge representation and visualization tasks for improving engineering education. The system provides a Web 2.0 rich environment and it encourages the user to interact with already represented knowledge and to include new one. For this purpose it combines an adaptive visualization of the knowledge structure with new features as the nested visualization view and the text parsing tool. The adaptive process of the knowledge structures representation utilizes the user and knowledge profile, including mouse movements and keyboard inputs as a source for extracting user information. At present, a Web mining component is being developed for extracting knowledge from educational Web resources.
