Abstract

In this chapter the authors present E-World, an e-learning platform able to manage and trace adaptive learning processes which are designed and created by means of a visual language based tool. To address the goal to have a platform easily extensible with new services, they have designed it selecting a software architecture based on the use of Web Services and a suitable Middleware component. To trace adaptive learning processes E-World also integrates as Web Service a suitable implementation of a RunTime Environment compliant with the Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) standard. Their proposal also supports the "anytime and anywhere" learning paradigm as it enables learners to enjoy linear or adaptive processes using any device equipped with a standard Web browser. In the chapter they also report on the experiment we have carried out to assess the usability of the proposed e-learning platform. © 2009, IGI Global.
