Utilizing WWW and Mosaic for Computer Science Education


We discuss goals, concepts, and limitations of utilizing hypermedia technology to support Computer Science lecture, and communication and presentation techniques for interactive learning material. The paper describes a practical example of an interactive hypertextbook, its integration with our learning and programming environment, and lists problems, questions and some hints for future Mosaic and HTML enhancements. Contents 1 Courseware Elements 1 2 Validation of Document Concepts 2 3 Orientation and Navigation Support 3 4 Active Hypertext Documents 3 5 Presentation Techniques 4 6 Summary 4 1 Courseware Elements We exploit HTML and Mosaic to construct a local and non-generic hypertext version of a lecture manuscript "Basics of Computer Science" at Technical University of Darmstadt. So far we do not intend to implement a virtual university like for instance GNA 1 or Paieida 2 , which use Internet as a campus-like base for distant education, even though many topics and problems ar..
