Creating Electronic Performance Support Systems for Australian Graduate Students in Computer Education.
Ring, Geoff
This paper describes research and development concerning the use of electronic performance support systems (EPSS) in interactive multimedia (IMM) classes at Edith Cowan University (ECU), Australia. EPSS are a special type of computerized support systems that integrate a knowledge base with practical tools required for a specific type of job. The use of an EPSS in the context of an IMM course is seen as appropriate given the heavy emphasis that is placed on the practical application of theory to large scale project work. The current IMM Project EPSS prototype consists of an information base and software tools with links between them. The first two research and development phases are characterized by qualitative research accompanied by concurrent development and evaluation. Phase 1 (Initial Assessment) consists of product design, development, and evaluative research. Phase 2 (Assessment of Initial Implementation) will determine the effects of implementing learning strategies based on the IMM EPSS on 30 graduate students. This assessment may result in new or modified research questions and software modifications for the EPSS. (JLB)
