Information technology tools for curriculum development

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic

    Abstract

    The widespread introduction and use of computers in the workplace began in the early 1990s. Since then, computer-based tools have been developed to support a myriad of task types, including the complex process of curriculum development. This chapter begins by briefly introducing two concepts that are bound together in the notion of computer supported curriculum development: the complexity of curriculum development tasks and the possibilities to support performance of such complex tasks. The chapter then focuses on three main types of information technology support tools for this domain: Electronic Performance Support Systems, Knowledge Management Systems, and Repositories. Characteristics of these tool types are described in general terms, and then demonstrated through an example. This chapter concludes with future directions for computer supported curriculum development.
