ON-DEMAND HELP SYSTEMS BASED ON WEBBLE TECHNOLOGY

Jun Fujima, Andrea Hofmann

Abstract

As many researchers pointed out, conventional help systems are not used or useless. In this paper, we introduce new functionality into the conventional on-demand help systems to create an effective help system. Proposed functionality is based onWebble technology. In theWebble technology, every part of application or compound documents can be reusable components. We use this feature positively in the composition of help documents to enrich functionality of help systems. By using this feature, the contents in help documents can be highly interactive as well as reusable by users for other purposes. We have shown deferent types of help systems and its usage in the Webble-based e-learning environment. Users can extract a part of the help documents and reuse it on their own environment.
