Automating Hypermedia Course Creation and Maintenance.
Carver, Curtis A.; Ray, Clark
While many tools exist for the development of individual Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) pages, few exist for the development of complete hypermedia courses. The HTML Course Creator (HCC), developed by students at the U.S. Military Academy (West Point, New York), allows instructors who are not HTML experts to rapidly develop and easily maintain consistent, distributed hypermedia courses and associated digital libraries. Using a simple point-and-click environment, instructors can add a variety of media types without knowing HTML tags. The tool acts on user input to create a hierarchical course structure and all of the related HTML documents. The course can be tailored to specific styles based on templates that are consistently applied to all course documents. The software also maintains a complete course-wide digital library of all media used within the course by location, media type, media anchor, and lesson. A table presents the components of the initial hypermedia course developed, and figures illustrate the following HCC interfaces--key information, main course, course, lesson, add graphic, and digital library. Contains 12 references. (Author/DLS)
