The Connected Learning Space

Published . Publisher: Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE).


This book focuses on the co-evolution of learning paradigms in the resonance of WWW-based learning support systems of the recent decade. Most striking is the rather autonomous trend towards information management for learning: the beauty of transparent user interfaces, highly dynamic and diagrammatic overviews, and mathematical models in the background that reduce the complexity of documents intertwining even without bothering the learner.
