Abstract

Proposed is that there be a file format and accompanying application to deliver e-learning education courses, thus factoring into the application the elements (multimedia players, environments for multiple choice questions, etc.) common to many courses and leaving in a data file a smaller core of course-specific material. There are advantages in terms of download time and storage space, as well as user interface familiarity for the student, to this proposal when compared to the existing practice of delivering as a stand-alone executable file each course.
