Towards an Adaptive Multimedia Learning Environment: Enhancing the Student Experience.
Kurzel, Frank; Slay, Jill; Rath, Michelle; Chau, Yenha
This paper describes the development of an adaptive multimedia learning environment that utilizes multimedia presentation techniques in its interface while still providing Internet connectivity for management and delivery purposes. The system supports the WWW as its addressing space but uses the local client areas to store media items expensive in terms of delivery time. Learning objects that provide frameworks for tasks and other summative assessment activities are stored on a server and delivered when required. The system supports link annotations in its adaptivity and employs an overlay student model with stereotyping when accessing the course content. (Contains 20 references.) (Author)
