dc.description.abstract Navigating and managing information on the web for each person is an important topic today. With the explos ive growth of the Internet and World Wide Web, users are overwhelmed with information. A method that can help the users re trieve information effectively needs to be provided. A Portal is a mechanism that enables people to navigate and collect information effectively. It is like a “door way” or a “single entry” at which users can drop by and see different things on the web. In other words, porta ls can collect data from different sources on the web and present them on a single page in an individualized ma nner. Moreover, portal users can customize their own page with interesting color, layout, and contents. In this study, an approach for increasing user flexibility in choosing channels is researched. My study will help web sufers overcom e the restriction of most current portals – portals just provide a fixed se t of channels, and hence limit th e content that users can view. That means the study gives a solution that allows users to create channels for themselves. This not only increases the flexibility for the users bu t also eliminates the tedious task in creating channels from portal administrators. Besides, a recommendation method is developed to predict and recommend to the users what info rmation channels the users may like. Through this recommendation, the users can discover or create the channe ls for themselves.
