A UML DEFINITION OF A MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORK FOR E-LEARNING SESSION-CENTRIC SERVICES

Theodore Apostolopoulos, Anna Kefala

Abstract

During the last decade, systems offering various e-learning services are implemented en masse. Proposed management framework aims at acting as a facilitator among e-learning systems, learners, underlying communication infrastructure and access devices, content and delivery methods, forming an integration management middleware, while at the same time acts as a broker for e-learning and content providing systems. Our framework is session profile centric, since a key characteristic is the dynamic creation of user session by detecting and managing information and parameters that are either derived by stored profiles or change dynamically at each user session. In this paper, we present content and e-learning provision services’ context, along with the proposed architecture overview. We also present session profile and a UML definition of its creation process.
