The ExploraGraph Advising System : an Ergonomical Evaluation of the Editor

Abstract : The first aim of the ExploraGraph project was to design a better interface for learners taking distance courses and also to integrate in it adaptive functions and advices to support them. The system offers a generic interface, in which courses can be defined as conceptual graphs describing structures of concepts, activities and/or documents. ExploraGraph serves as a front to access web courses.; local and distant applications, documents and forums may also be organized into a course. The system uses a Navigator for learners and an Editor for professors to design the learning and supporting environments. We present here the results of the ergonomical evaluation of the ExploraGraph Editor. Observation of professors trying to use the system to describe a course highlight the complexity of the activity of creating courses as a structure of activities integrating multiple references, but especially to design support functions in such a learning environment, taking into account individual progression. This research presents how the system could be made more generic, using templates of generic types of support. Thus we propose elements for an ontology of support in telelearning environment.
