Paper Abstract

This paper presents an approach for authoring training applications. In this approach we think an author can undertake two roles: the meta-authoring role and the authoring role. A meta-author selects educational material and proposes lessons to be used later by an author in order to build specific educational applications. These two roles are supported by the meta-authoring tool and the authoring tool, which both form the authoring environment. The system also comprises a repository with generic and re-usable data, and a delivery environment. Resulted applications consist of flexible educational sessions, which are adjustable according to the learner's profile and overcome several problems, such as disorientation, usually encountered in hypermedia applications. Thus, authors can easily and effectively build educational applications, trainees' progress is automatically assessed, and reusability is achieved.
