Why Web Pages Annotation Tools Are Not Killer Applications? A New Approach to an Old Problem.
Ronchetti, Marco; Rizzi, Matteo
The idea of annotating Web pages is not a new one: early proposals date back to 1994. A tool providing the ability to add notes to a Web page, and to share the notes with other users seems to be particularly well suited to an e-learning environment. Although several tools already provide such possibility, they are not widely popular. This paper examines the reasons for this fact and proposes a novel architectural approach that is particularly well-suited to e-learning. Also presented is a tool that implements the proposed architecture. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/AEF)
