A framework to support teaching in distributed systems
C. Burger, K. Rothermel
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/376697.376698
Computer networks and distribute systems are characterized by highly dynamic, concurrent, and complex processes. Thus, training in this area requires great effort from both teachers and learners. Teachers are disatisfied with available methods...

Reusability and adaptability of interactive resources in Web-based educational systems
Abdulmotaleb El Saddik, Stephan Fischer, Ralf Steinmetz
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/376697.376699
The production of interactive multimedia content is in most cases an expensive task in terms of time and cost. Hence, optimizing production by exploiting the reusability of interactive multimedia elements is mandatory. Reusability can be...

Course and exercise sequencing using metadata in adaptive hypermedia learning systems
Stephan Fischer
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/376697.376700
In the last few years the (semi-) automatic sequencing of course material has become an important research issue, particularly the standardization of metadata for educational resources. Sequencing can help to generate hypermedia...
