Open and Accessible Presentations

Erik Wilde


E-learning often is perceived as something that, on the technical level, can be addressed by designing an e-learning system, which often is equipped with a Web-based interface. We argue that this traditional approach of e-learning system design should be reversed in today's Web-oriented environment, in the sense that e-learning applications should be designed as well-behaving Web citizens and expose their services through nothing else but the Web's loose coupling principles. This article presents a system for Web-based presentations which follows this approach in publishing presentation material in a way that is as Web-friendly as possible. We show how such a system can be used as one building block in an e-learning infrastructure; replacing the traditional view of monolithic e-learning systems with an open and loosely coupled ecosystem of cooperating e-learning Web applications.
