Koutoumanos, Anastasios; Papaspyrou, Nikolaos; Retalis, Simeon; Maurer, Hermann; Skordalakis, Emmanuel
This paper presents a novel Networked Learning Environment (Nov-NLE); system components include Hyper-G (a networked hypermedia system) and the Internet. The first section discusses problems with the conventional university teaching model and technology-based solutions to these problems. The requirements and design of Nov-NLE are covered in the second section, including accessibility of course information and information distributed on the Internet, communication channels, and facilitation of administrative tasks. The administration/management, communication/presentation, and educational resources subsystems are described. The third section presents a prototype of Nov-NLE with the following characteristics: (1) is a distributed system in which links are stored in a separate database; (2) allows objects to be added to the system piecemeal; (3) utilizes access rights for every hypermedia collection; (4) includes sophisticated search mechanisms; (5) allows any user can annotate any document; (6) is interoperable with other first generation hypermedia systems; and (7) is multilingual. The concluding section discusses plans for the future of the project. Contains 17 references. (DLS)
