Reuse of web-based resources in technology-enhanced student-centered learning environments

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Educational resources are integral components of resourceintensive technology-enhanced and ''student-centered'' learning environments. While resources on delivery formats such as CD-ROMs are carefully selected, edited, reworked and presented for specific educational purposes, a lot of resources on the Web are not. Adopts the term ''non-educationallyfocused (NEF) resource'' to refer to such resources. NEF resources may have the potential for educational use, but have not been identified for this purpose. Recognizes this subtle but significant difference between ''educational resources'' and ''educational aspects of resources'' among the plethora of information that can be found on the World Wide Web, and promotes the direct learner use and reuse of NEF resources. Urges those concerned with formulating metadata standards to recognize the notion of NEF resources and start the process of extending the standard to enabling the effective use and reuse of the richer NEF resources base on the World Wide Web
