EadGen, un environnement ouvert de production en ligne basé sur XML et XSL-T

Abstract : This article describes EadGen, an authoring environment designed and implemented for producing documents for distant learning. It results from a collaboration between CNAM and CNRS. EadGen offers an open production chain which is fully programmable by specialists (author, collection director, graphist...), each one being responsible of his own expertise and working with his own specialized tools. The production chain runs from the content authoring to the delivering of on-line documents. It automatically transforms learning material into interactive documents, according to the specifications elaborated by the collection director in order to build customizable learning paths. These specifications result from negotiation between the authors and the collection director and correspond to mediatisation requirements which are common to a set of courses. The requirements are expressed by means of open authoring languages which can be adapted on demand, owing to XML extensibility. XSL-T transforms are used to express how final documents are produced. The original point of our approach is to make XML use transparent to users by providing adaptable mark-up languages which offer a light notation and the semantics of which can be easily specified.
