Abstract

Web-based resource development of online content is a central focus in many universities worldwide as they seek to either create or adapt existing courses to incorporate webbased content, interaction and communication options. Institutions often support this process by the adoption of a Learning Management System such as WebCT or Blackboard. However, these systems have been shown to be limited in their ability to support pedagogically sound courseware development. This paper addresses this issue and presents an innovative model of collaborative processes and actions involved in the development of an online multimedia glossary tool. This tool can support multiple authors, distributed online multimedia content derived from multiple servers, and content creation and annotation by students. A prototype of this tool, called MEGA-U, exists and is undergoing further development. Copyright © 2003 International Conference on Computers in Education ICCE 2003.
