Abstract

In this paper we propose a new coordination approach for the AulaNet Learning Management System. The proposed coordination protocol is based on a workflow mechanism that could be used by teachers to define some specific sequence of activities within a course run within AulaNet. This way, at least part of the social protocol that governs the flow of the course could be enforced by software.
