"This ground-breaking book looks at innovative educational and training uses of the Web that will enhance all types of learning. This paperback edition, with a new introduction by the editors, brings together examples of research projects from the Knowledge Media Institute at the UK Open University. The Knowledge Web provides a vital guide to the educational possibilities offered by 'knowledge media'. This term, coined by the editors, encompasses a broad programme of research into new learner-centred technologies including: Internet-enhanced collaboration media, multimedia environments for disabled learners, intelligent agents, organizational memories, digital documents, scientific visualization and simulation tools, informal and formal representations of knowledge - in short, innovative approaches to sharing, accessing and understanding knowledge."--BOOK JACKET
