Rapanta, Chrysi ; Cantoni, Lorenzo (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2011.

The present dissertation has as a main goal to identify and describe relevant design and communication processes taking place during co-design meetings, in a way suitable to inform practice in similar settings in the field of eLearning design and development. The need for such a research emerges from the inadequacy of prescriptive models that can guide professionals in their communication...

In the last years, Instructional Design has seen the development of visual models for supporting and enhancing the design process. A part of them concern the definition of learning goals, while others address the definition of learning activities or learning materials. These tools supposedly reduce the cognitive load and enhance design communication. Few contributions try to assess the impact...

Botturi, Luca

In: Proceedings of EDMEDIA 2003, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, 2003, vol. 1, p. 304

E2ML is a modeling language spe cifically developed for the design of educational environments. It models the goals, requirement and design of the teaching and learning activity. Its core parts are a verbal statement and visual mapping of goals and a visual UML-like representation of the learning activity.

E2ML : Educational Environment Modeling Language

Botturi, Luca ; Colombetti, Marco (Dir.)

This study moves from the consideration of the communication dynamics within the instructional design practice. With the introduction of electronic media, the design of educational environments in Higher Education has ceased to be a craftsmanship activity, and has acquired some features proper of mass production. This makes communication a more and more critical issue in design. The original goal...
