Abstract

In this research an e-Learning system was developed focusing on how to implement the idea of dynamic contents in teaching materials, creating what we call Dynamic Teaching Materials, with which teachers themselves can easily change or update the teaching materials according to the requirements of the class. The contents created with the system can also be easily shared between any teachers, and when the shared content of one teacher is updated all the other teaching materials that use the same content can also be automatically updated. The teaching materials are produced in a WYSIWYG interface that allows teachers to create interactive multimedia content without any knowledge of programing languages; the content can also be edited in realtime. The interface design was focused on maximum utilization of the user’s prior computer knowledge, so they do not have to learn basic operations. The system was tested and is being used by the Department of Foreign Languages and Translation of Brasilia University in Brazil.
