J. Lischka, J. Bajnai, and D. Karagiannis (Austria)


E-Learning, Course Management Framework, Instructor support.


This paper introduces a Framework for classifying differ ent learning scenarios. Furthermore, these scenarios have to be supported by a layered stack of models represent ing different views for respective users. In particular, this paper focuses on the role of instructors. With the help of the mentioned approach, instructors have the ability to plan, manage and structure a course independent of a plat form or technology. In order to retrieve and use learn ing objects two different learning paradigms can be used: first, contemporary solutions with client-server architec tures based on XML represent the scenario where instruc tors know most of the details about their courses; secondly, the service-oriented architecture and Semantic Web tech nologies reflect the scenario where instructors themselves take the student-role because they are - at the time of the course creation - not fully aware of all specifics about their course. Both scenarios are presented on a conceptual level and blend E-Learning with the discipline of Knowledge Management.
