Abstract

Topic maps have been introduced as a HCI-solution within e-learning. One problem when using topic maps is that the student is left in a passive consumer role. The article proposes a topic map ontology, focusing on both students and teachers as active producers of learning resources. The article also discusses how small-scale and large-scale sharing of student-made learning resources can be achieved. Topic maps customize the interface, and the interface should also provide possibilities for online students to share learning resources like "on campus" students do. The article also discusses implications for the online teacher's role and how students could be encouraged to share in an online learning environment.
