Reusable and Usable Environment for the Digital Courseware Domain
InSITE 2002 • Volume 2 • 2002
This paper considers a functional framework that creates a usable authoring support environment (ASE) for digital course design, and outputs reusable components. Within the context of considering the courseware domain as a domain of interactive software systems, we developed an ASE prototype. The objectives of this prototype include the provision of a usable authoring tool to develop interactive courseware, as well as the creation of domain products that are based on open standards to foster large-scale reuse of these products. In this paper we describe the software architecture of the prototype, based on usability requirements.
