Abstract

Large-scale adaptive educational software requires advanced technological infrastructures in order to support various cooperative educational organizations. This paper proposes a framework for overcoming the difficulties that arise due to the distribution and heterogeneity of current collaborative educational technologies. The proposed framework is based on XML it is of distributive and cooperative nature since it is characterized by the following: Each educational organization may plan its development to meet its own needs, It is possible for each organization to concurrently reuse the software that has already been developed by any other organization, Each organization can combine its own software production, with the production of other cooperative organizations, in various ways.
