Status- und Steuerelemente fur sprachbezoegene Ubungsprogramme (Status and Control Elements for Language Related Training Program).
To use computers as a medium to learn a language, there is need for some GUI-elements indicating and regulating the actual status of training. These elements have to be separated into obligatory ones, useful in almost all CALL-software, and facultative ones, necessary for most "teachware." Due to a general need of reducing the difficulties to get into the use of a training program for language learning, a standardization, as far as possible, of these GUI-elements should be aimed for. Suggestions for design and function are made on the basis of the training program "Verbindungsarten" (German as a foreign language/for special purposes: mechanical engineering). Pictures of actual computer screens are included. (Contains 3 references.) (Author)
