The Design of an Integrated System for Web-Based Distance Education.
Wang, Hongxue; Holt, Pete
This paper deals with the design of an integrated system for Web-based distance education (ISWBDE). At the highest level, this system can be dissected into two sub-systems: an integrated course authoring system (ICAS) and an integrated course delivery system (ICDS). The ICAS is designed to help with, or automate the creation and management of curriculum, learning objects, and courses, whereas the ICDS is designed to generate personalized courses for individual students, to provide an integrated online learning environment on students' computers, an integrated tutoring environment for tutors and an integrated coordinating environment for course coordinators. The focus of this paper is on the design of the whole system, rather than the implementation. (Contains 16 references.) (Author)
