Course Development Environment for Hyperwave.
Maurer, Hermann; Scherbakov, Nick
A new Courseware Development Environment (CoDE) is currently being developed for Hyperwave World Wide Web servers. CoDE provides instructional designers with an easy-to-use yet powerful environment to develop online training; students have the ability to access this training using a standard Web browser. Functionality of the Hyperwave server is extended by: (1) a Multimedia Editor, providing the capability for creating highly interactive learning elements with functionality that cannot be achieved in plain HTML format; (2) a Page Editor, providing a convenient way for authoring pages by means of reusing existing elements; and (2) a Structure Editor, providing a way to impose a navigable structure on top of existing collections of pages, thus creating a learning unit. Each of these components, described in detail in this paper, are based on a common tool, called "Tree View," that provides a unified access to a local drive or a Hyperwave server. Figures present diagrams of page template components, saving a learning unit to a Hyperwave server, and accessing a learning unit, as well as screens of activating a macro cell and editing a learning unit.
