Microcosm: A Hypermedia Platform for the Delivery of Learning Materials

Davis, Hugh C., Hutchings, Gerard A. and Hall, Wendy (1993) Microcosm: A Hypermedia Platform for the Delivery of Learning Materials s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


This report describes the Microcosm model and philosophy, and explains the advantages of taking an open, resource-based approach to the development and delivery of learning materials over traditional Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) practices. We describe early experiences in creating materials for the Microcosm environment, paying special attention to the features of the system which make authoring in this way different from traditional practices. Finally, we look at the initial use of Microcosm by students of History and Biology at the University of Southampton.
