XEDU, a Framework for Developing XML-Based Didactic Resources

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Recent educational software applications use Web technologies like XML to improve teaching methods in distance learning environments. Though XML has been already used to implement a high number of didactic resources, specification methodologies to develop these resources are rarely applied. As a consequence, the reuse and maintenance of those resources become a difficult task. This paper emphasises the use of hypermedia models to deal with this problem. Hypermedia models have long considered to have a great potential to represent educational applications. The current work proposes the XEDU framework that works over the Labyrinth hypermedia model, to manage and organise didactic resources.
