Platform-independent authoring and production of rapid e-learning content

Martin Gutbrod, Christian Werner, Stefan Fischer


One of today's major problems in the field of e-learning is that the creation of high-quality content is still rather time consuming and expensive. In the past, many efforts have been made to produce educational content on the fly, but the results were mainly static blocks of recorded lecture lacking sophisticated navigation facilities. Facing this challenge the authors developed the concept of hyper-presentations. During the live presentation content- and time-based metadata is captured and stored in a lightweight and player-independent format. With this metadata powerful navigation facilities like real time navigation and full text search in audio or video data can be generated automatically. This improves flexibility and interoperability of technical solutions, which are both key factors in the emerging rapid e-learning market.
