Supporting Provision and Access of Educational Visual Resources on the Web.
Zhao, Zhengmai; Hu, Jian
This paper presents an information retrieval system for delivering educational visual materials through the World Wide Web. The system is designed to meet the following user requirements: lecturers prefer direct control over their visual resources; lecturers demand a browser-based interface that will allow them to create and modify their online visual resources easily; and students prefer more approaches to retrieval of information than just keyword search. Topics discussed include: (1) a description of the system, including major features and types of facilities to support information delivery and access (i.e., searching, browsing, and editing); (2) an application of the system to build an online image collection about architectural history that will be used as resource material for courses related to the history of architecture and design; and (3) a database implementation of the system. Two figures illustrate the architectures of the system and the database-based system. An appendix contains sample searching and browsing screens. Contains 10 references. (DLS)
