CD-LOMAS: A COLLABORATIVE DISTRIBUTED LEARNING OBJECT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Andrea De Lucia, Rita Francese, Ignazio Passero, Genoveffa Tortora

Abstract

Learning Objects are stored in repositories and spread through Internet. The educational sector needs to share good quality educational contents, which can be reused and adopted in several contexts. In this paper we present CD-LOMAS (Collaborative Distributed Learning Object MAnagement System) to support the sharing of contents and the collaboration on their development in a highly distributed environment. Complex Learning Objects are decomposed into simpler Learning Objects that can be distributed at different sites. In CD-LOMAS artifact management features, such as coordination of cooperative workers and versioning, are integrated with context-awareness.
