Semantic Web and Adaptive Hypermedia come from different backgrounds, but it turns out that actually, they can benefit from each other, and that their confluence can lead to synergistic effects. This encounter can influence several fields, among which an important one is Education. This paper presents an analysis of this encounter, first from a theoretical point of view, and then with the help of LAOS, an Adaptive Hypermedia (authoring) framework that has already taken many steps towards accomplishing the goals of the Semantic Web. Here we also show how the LAOS framework, and more specifically, its implementation, MOT (My Online Teacher), can be re-written in Semantic Web languages, as an exercise of bringing Adaptive Hypermedia and the Semantic Web closer together.
