Specification of Visual Instructional Design Languages Dedicated to Learning Management Systems

Aymen Abedmouleh, Pierre Laforcade, Lahcen Oubahssi

Abstract

Despite of the growing development of learning technologies into education, designing learning scenarios and exploiting them for setting up a learning situation is still a complex task. Visual Instructional Design Languages (VIDL) and their dedicated graphical editors have been identified as important conceptual tools for achieving more creative design solutions within a design process. In this article we propose the application of Domain-Specific Modeling tools for specifying and developing VIDLs and editors dedicated to specific Learning Management Systems. An experimentation concerning the Moodle LMS is discussed.
