Pimentel, Maria da Graca Campos; dos Santos, Joao Benedito, Jr.; de Mattos Fortes, Renata Pontin
This paper presents aspects of modeling, authoring, and presenting structured documents corresponding to teaching material presented in the World Wide Web. In this context, the importance of providing the formalization of the structure of the documents using Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) is discussed. Next, specifications for structured documents corresponding to didactic texts and questionnaires are presented; examples of two Document Type Definitions (DTDs)--Teaching Material Markup Language (TMML) and Questionnaire Markup Language (QuestML)--are included. The HyperBuilder and QuestBuilder software tools for the authoring and presentation of those documents are then discussed. The paper concludes with a discussion of related work and next steps of this research. Six figures present a diagram of the target environment, the TMML DTD, the QuestML DTD, the architecture of the components, the HyperBuilder interface, and the QuestBuilder interface. (Author/AEF)
