This chapter traces the evolution of GeogDL, a digital library of geography examination resources. The initial version of the system was evaluated with a group of secondary school student design partners through the use of scenario-based design and claims analysis to identify areas of refinement. The findings from this study led to the development of a second-generation system with a redesigned user interface and a new module named PAPER (Personalized Adaptive Pathways for Examination Resources) that provides mock exams and personalized recommendations of examination questions. A second study involving teacher design partners generated positive feedback that generally concurred with the goals and features of PAPER. Implications for the future development of GeogDL are also discussed in the context of these studies.
