Multimodal Microgenres for Designing Learning Objects
Vorvilas, George; Vergidis, Dimitris; Ravanis, Konstantinos
Themes in Science and Technology Education, v4 n2 p89-102 2011
This paper presents a genre-based conceptual framework for designing content for learning objects. Some content aggregation models are reviewed in order to stress the lack of such an approach. In this framework, learning objects are considered as multimodal macrogenres. These macrogenres are constituted of content objects which in fact are several types of digital microgenres. The information linking of content objects can be achieved through particular logicosemantic relations between them. Finally, if adopting this framework, an author/teacher is supported by a repertoire of concepts which make him capable of creating coherent material in order to affect and motivate his/her students in particular ways, through his/her intended social and educational purposes.
