Constructivist approaches to authoring

  • John G. Hedberg University of Wollongong

This paper discusses the thinking behind MediaPlant, an authoring tool which has been designed to embody several constructivist ideas in its development. It begins with some comparisons with some commonly employed tools and suggests that how the tools are designed to be used poses limitations upon the learning tasks which are designed. The chapter concludes with some examples of how the tools have been used and the types of products that have resulted from its use.
