Extending the IEEE-LTSA.
Voskamp, Jorg; Hambach, Sybille
An Internet-based course management system has been under development at the Fraunhofer-Institute for Computer Graphics Rostock (Germany) for the past 5 years. It is used by experts for distributing their courses via the Internet and by students for learning with the material distributed. The "Course Management System for WWW--CMS-W3" supports self studies, group learning, and communication among students and with the tutor. There are various standardization processes on information and communication technology-based learning materials running all over the world. The Learning Technology Systems Architecture (LTSA) is one standard developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1484 Learning Technology Standards Committee. One important part of CMS-W3 was missing and was not described in the LTSA. It was found that the proposed LTSA was missing the part on how the knowledge is transferred through the system. This paper proposes an extension of the LTSA supplementing the process of knowledge transfer: from the expert to the resources of the system and back to the expert in the form of experience. (AEF)
