[publication] Mixing Content and Endless Collaboration – MashUps: Towards Future Personal Learning Environments
A Draftversion of our publication “Mixing Content and Endless Collaboration – MashUps: Towards Future Personal Learning Environments” at this year HCII Conference is now online available.
The recent movement by major Web services towards making many application programming interfaces (APIs) available for public use has led to the development of the new MashUp technology, a method of merging content, services and applications from multiple web sites. The new technology is now being successfully applied in the academic community to enrich and improve learning and teaching applications. This paper examines its implementation and use, discusses methods and styles of usage and highlights the advantages and
disadvantages of client and server application, based on related work and recent experiences gathered with a large university-wide open learning management system (WBT-Master/TeachCenter of Graz allows lecturers to use diverse web resources.
