Embedding Self-Management and Generic Learning Support into Courseware Structures

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


Traditional Computer-Aided Teaching and Learning (CAT/CAL) environments in multimedia-based teleeducation do not empower knowledge consumers (trainees, students etc.) to practice content transfer and knowledge acquisition in a self-managed and context-sensitive way. Since such kind of transfer process has to involve both, teachers and learners, it requires the support of different perspectives on material as well as interaction features for self-directed learning and context-sensitive interaction. In order to implement a proper solution, we have developed a didactic scheme for self-managed content transfer. Subsequently, we have embedded that framework into meta-models of course material. In doing so, elements of the didactic framework have been mapped to courseware features. Finally, we designed features for collaboration. As result, a generic architecture for selfmanaged and context-driven CAT/CAL can be defined. We exemplify our solution through a corresponding development project targeting to support academic education in the field of Business Information Systems.
