Abstract

Current courseware development has moved to integrate multimedia, the WWW and Internet techniques. We think that the courseware design should not only put teaching materials on the Web and integrate audio/video facilities, but also should focus on other issues, such as user interfaces and software architecture. Our approach is to adapt the general architecture for building a Web site to our courseware development by identifying the roles of system programmers, Web developers, and course designers. The user interfaces is the crucial part for a courseware system. This paper introduces the design for effective user interfaces which can help students' learning.
