Component-based learning technologies

The design, use and reuse of learning material for the digital era require a modular design philosophy.

In collaboration with the National Ageny for Education (Skolverket) the KMR-group is presently working on a component composition environment called VWE (Virtual Workspace Environment), where components will be easily integrated into customized learning modules in a work process that will support both a single "component composer" as well as a team of such composers that are involved in different forms of collaborative curriculum design[1].

[1] This work is the major theme of a doctoral thesis project on knowledge components by Fredrik Paulsson under the supervision of Ambjörn Naeve.
