Any WWW-interested folks within hailing distance of Southampton
should consider taking a look at Microcosm, esp. to note how it
might interact in interesting ways with web-based technologies.

Association for Learning Technology Workshop
Building Resource-Based Learning Environments
Using Hypermedia Systems
Presenters: Wendy Hall, Gerard Hutchings & Hugh Davis
Date: Tuesday July 13th 1993
Duration: 10.00 - 16.30
Venue: University of Southampton
The main objective of this workshop is to show how the new generation of
open hypermedia systems, such as Microcosm, can be used to build
richly-resourced, multimedia learning environments. Participants will be
introduced to authoring in Microcosm and shown how this environment is
being used to create a campus-wide structure for multimedia learning.
Examples of material developed as part of the project will be used as
illustrations. Participants will also be shown how existing applications
can be integrated into such an environment and linked to the multimedia
material in the resource-base.
10:00-10:30 Registration & Coffee
Review of existing systems, the need for open
systems, overview of Microcosm
13:30-15:00 Authoring in Microcosm
Examples of the use of Microcosm to include:
15:30-16:30 Microcosm as the basis for a resource-based learning strategy
Open learning systems for the future
Coffee, lunch, tea provided.
Registration fee: #50.00 for ALT members; #100.00 for non-members.
