An Education Broker Toolset for Web Course Customization.
Langenbach, Christian; Bodendorf, Freimut
Within an electronic education market, an electronic education mall is defined as a virtual service center to support various transaction processes by providing a technological platform with appropriate value-added services and interfaces for suppliers and customers. In this context, an education broker service is of central importance, because the quality of the learning process is strongly determined by the quality of the available materials and their configuration to an integrated course according to a pedagogical concept and the respective customers' needs. To support these tasks, an Education Broker Toolset is introduced which is designed to: select the "right" elements out of a set of generally suitable learning models; adjust and structure the chosen learning modules to an integrated course in a pedagogically and didactically useful way; add navigational guides; provide added values; and deliver the integrated course to allow an intuitive application by the student. The Education Broker Toolset includes the PreSelector, which provides a questionnaire for determining students' individual needs, preferences, and qualifications, and the CourseComposer, designed to support integration of pre-selected learning modules. A CourseNavigator program enables students to access courses composed by the broker, supports navigational guidance, and provides added values. Three figures present the transaction process of World Wide Web course customization and CourseComposer and CourseNavigator screens. (Author/AEF)
