This book discusses the development of new models, methods, and tools to support the design and production of (computer-based) learning material.
The contributions describe a number of projects that represent the state of the art of European research on courseware authoring, with a special attention to simulation-based learning material. Researchers in instructional science and educational technology, trainers, teachers, and professionals involved or interested in the development of learning material will find valuable ideas, clues and references in this book. Some of the relevant topics that emerge from the papers are: the separation of the conceptual representation of the knowledge to be taught from the instructional strategies and from the actual pieces of multimedia learning material; the support of all the phases of the authoring process, including the most abstract at the design stage; collaborative approaches and reuse techniques.
