Authoring and Maintaining of Educational Applications on the Web.
Helic, Denis; Maurer, Hermann; Scherbakov, Nick
This paper discusses problems concerning the design of educational applications in general, as well as specific problems connected with educational applications meant to be published on the Web. A new approach to the authoring and maintaining of Web-based educational applications is proposed which is based on the concept of hypermedia composites. Hypermedia composites can be seen as a higher level of hypermedia authoring; the hypermedia composite represents a collection of multimedia documents and/or other hypermedia composites. The Hypermedia Composite Data Model allows the possibility of defining many different "classes" of educational applications, to best match the requirements of a particular application. The architecture, components and functions of the Structure Editor, a system that implements the Hypermedia Composite Data Model, are described. Includes six figures. (AEF)
