About this book

Cooperative Computer-Aided Authoring and Learning: A Systems Approach describes in detail a practical system for computer assisted authoring and learning. Drawing from the experiences gained during the Nestor project, jointly run between the Universities of Karlsruhe, Kaiserslautern and Freiburg and the Digital Equipment Corp. Center for Research and Advanced Development, the book presents a concrete example of new concepts in the domain of computer-aided authoring and learning.
The conceptual foundation is laid by a reference architecture for an integrated environment for authoring and learning. This overall architecture represents the nucleus, shell and common denominator for the R&D activities carried out. From its conception, the reference architecture was centered around three major issues:

  • Cooperation among and between authors and learners in an open, multimedia and distributed system as the most important attribute;
  • Authoring/learning as the central topic;
  • Laboratory as the term which evoked the most suitable association with the envisioned authoring/learning environment.
Within this framework, the book covers four major topics which denote the most important technical domains, namely:
  • The system kernel, based on object orientation and hypermedia;
  • Distributed multimedia support;
  • Cooperation support, and
  • Reusable instructional design support.
Cooperative Computer-Aided Authoring and Learning: A Systems Approach is a major contribution to the emerging field of collaborative computing and is essential reading for researchers and practitioners alike. Its pedagogic flavor also makes it suitable for use as a text for a course on the subject.
