It's Easy To Be Wise after the Event: Concepts for Redesigning an Educational System on Logistics Derived from Reflecting Its Development and Use.
Neumann, Gaby; Ziems, Dietrich; Hopner, Christian
This paper introduces a multimedia-based educational system on logistics developed at the University of Magdeburg (Germany), reports on development and implementation of the prototype, and discusses ideas for redesign. The system was tested, used, and evaluated at the university and within a European network of 24 universities, colleges, and training centers from 13 countries. Students were interviewed and completed questionnaires regarding opinions, criticisms, and wishes in relation to the system. The development process, including guidelines, story board, navigation, calculation exercises, layout, integrated notepads, language-independent components, and language-specific components, is discussed. Ideas for expansion and modification of the educational system include: increasing user-friendliness by reorganizing and reworking the interface; supporting more flexible teaching and learning processes by providing learner-specific interaction and feedback; and expanding use by integrating the module into distance courses, adapting to student needs, and facilitating alternate forms of communication. Possibilities for more effective authors' support focus on: expanding and explaining conventions for structuring and designing the system and its elements; putting further knowledge of facts and methods into modular form according to content and formal aspects and documenting them in a way that is easily searchable; and supporting the collection, management, and finding of resources by a resource pool with a comfortable management system.
