Content Production for E-Learning in Engineering

Andreas Auinger


Abstract?The didactic quality of lear0ning materials can be improved by enriching learning material with di-dactic information. Such content elements assist self-directed learning processes in virtual learning environ-ments effectively. In order to develop didactically motiva-ted for flexible use, e.g., at different terminal devices such as PC or PDA, a structured procedure is required. We propose the selection and identification of didactically relevant information prior to enrichment of highly struc-tured content with didactical information. It can be achie-ved by using the CoDEx method (Content Didactically Explicit), and a mapping scheme to the learning-technology standard conform XML content structures. Furthermore, aspects for multi-channel content delivery in the application field of engineering have to be taken into account. In this paper we refer to the objectives and results of the EU-funded ELIE project (E-Learning In Enginee-ring) to demonstrate the proposed procedure?s effective-ness for content engineering.
