An Architecture for Dynamic Courseware Working on the Web.
Wu, Albert; Tam, Lincoln
This paper presents an architecture for creating, retrieving, and adapting materials on the World Wide Web for learning purposes. There are two major components in the architecture: Authoring Server (AS) and Courseware Server (CS). Associated with the architecture for running dynamic courseware, certain mechanisms are also imposed. These mechanisms involve the manipulation of information on some defined templates. At the moment, there are three standard templates developed: courseware-information-template, curriculum-template, and teaching-style-template. The architecture components have been experimentally implemented in a local server housed at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Although more significant results are yet to be seen, the endeavor nonetheless provides a simple yet effective means for building courseware from the pool of teaching materials on the Web. (AEF)
