This paper gives a short description of a working prototype of an intelligent background knowledge broker as an enhancement module of the Web base training system GENTLE [Maurer and Dietinger 97a, Dietinger and Maurer 98a]. The dynamic and the static library represent a most relevant knowledge repository, which is automatically enlarged and improved by the(More)
In this paper we claim that the navigational and structural tools currently available on the Internet are not su cient to fully exploit the tremendous power of the largest information and communication ressource mankind has ever had. We contend that current hypermedia systems and its most prominent specimen WWW do not have enough functionality to provide(More)
This paper is a short description of HIKS, a working prototype of an interactive knowledge management system. HIKS might be used as a dynamic background library in a Web-based training environment. Research in the field of Web-based learning at the [IICM] has shown that courseware combined only with static background libraries does not satisfy the learners’(More)
Two of today’s most used buzz-words in the context of software development are the terms Componentware and Distributed Object-System. The combination of both ideas is then called a Distributed Component-System, meaning a componentware approach where the components are distributed across the network. Today’s approaches fulfill the application developers’(More)
This paper deals with the development of highly sophisticated teaching environments. We took a look at the requirements that such a system has to fulfill to meet the needs of our modern society and to remain easily adaptable to forthcoming, new technologies. The results of our research show that the cost for design and implementation of a distributed(More)

!BSTRACT This paper describes in brief a basic framework for implementing a telematic-platform for patient oriented services. We first show the current situation in the medical field and work out the requirements for an integrating platform. Afterwards we introduce Active Node Technology (ANT), the technology the platform will be based on. The always(More)
In this paper the Adaptive Learning Environment Framework is presented. This Framework allows to re-use, combine, and improve existing learning systems or knowledge-databases and equip the resulting meta-learning environment with a new advanced user interface. Especially the last mentioned feature supports a completely new way to learn different materials(More)
