Automatic generation of virtual learning spaces driven by CaVaDSL: an experience report

Abstract

Several applications are based on Domain-Specific Languages (DSL). They provide the right terminology to a peculiar problem/subject, because they use a particular domain vocabulary that defines abstract concepts, different from general-purpose languages. Aiming an easy generation of virtual Learning Spaces (LS) for the use of the responsible of institutional archives or museums, we have idealized and developed an external domain-specific language, called CaVa DSL, to describe, in an abstract level, virtual exhibition rooms in the museum curator's viewpoint, giving the curator the possibility to specify the virtual LS upon a domain ontology vocabulary. We also contribute with a set of processors that deal with CaVa DSL and generates virtual Learning Spaces, turning available the navigation over important and real information contained in archival documents to the public through virtual museums. To demonstrate the obtained results, we present a running example along the paper showing the virtual LS generation process.
