ABSTRACT

This paper describes the design and implementation of a web-based web-based Course Authoring and Management System (CAMS) for organizing, integrating and composing personalized and interactive course notes for online education. A 5-layerd architecture is proposed for the CMCAMS and is implemented using the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE). A web-based distance education system has been developed over this framework to test its effectiveness. This system enables educators to manage personalized learning materials that are structured, profiled and streamed to students. It will examine the user`s profile to identify what level of difficulty to incorporate and what kind of presentation style to adopt based on the bandwidth available to students. The CMCAMS uses XML and XSLT techniques to generates SMIL documents, which form the backbone for educational online materials. The CMCAMS has several essential features: (1) Remote Access (2) Easy to use (3) Support for Multi-Style and (4) Multilingual online multimedia content through SMIL presentation.
