The multimedia history textbook (MBook) (completed)
The multimedia textbook (mbook) developed by Waltraud Schreiber’s research group is an interactive and customizable study- and workbook for a classroom setting which reveals its own principles of construction and was prototypically developed for history lessons. Technically and didactically this browser-based and hyperactive book is a new development for competence-based teaching.
The main potential of the mBook lies in the possibility of its use both as a promotional tool as well as a research instrument. The project scientifically examines the capability of the multimedia textbook.
The project examines whether and how the instructional and extra-curricular utilization data can be applied towards the clarification of skills development.
