In this paper, we propose an approach for the engineering of web based educational applications. The applications that we focus require advanced functionality for regulating and tutoring learners' activities (dynamics of learning). Our approach aims at proposing models, not only to describe details of such learning situations, but also to characterize the(More)
Visual programming languages (VPLs) provide notations for representing both the intermediate and the final results of a knowledge engineering process. Whereas some VPLs particularly focus on control flow and/or data flow of a software, very few VPLs stress on the interactive dimension of application (dialogue flow). This paper focuses on a VPL allowing(More)
The research presented in this paper takes as its starting point a review of the knowledge modeling capabilities of Educational Modeling Languages (EMLs)and in particular of the EML-OU from the Open University of the Netherlands. We explain how educational designers need modeling languages addressing cognitive, structural and social aspects of education.(More)
This paper focuses on the production of authoring tools that teachers may use to prototype interactive geographical web applications. We present some computational models and a toolset that we designed to address some needs of teachers trying to make use of particular localized documents called " travel stories ". Our research challenge is to enable(More)
