The complexity in terms of visualizing added information in web-sites is influencing the reading quality for the learner and, thereby, affects the whole learning process. In the contribution, we are showing examples how the visualization and storage of, e.g., annotations, highlighted text, and links can be improved by allowing the learner to individually select the amount and kind of added information in the learning material. Based on the SMARTBARS by Reiners et al. (2002), we show a new concept and implementation – using state-of-the-art features like the so-called Web 2.0 – how the learning process can be improved for general web-sites from the Internet incorporating server-based storage, context-sensitive marks, and sharing of information.
