Language training for various purposes in several languages on a common hypermedia framework

Abstract : The principal aim of the CAMILLE project is the development and delivery of hypermedia courseware in Dutch, Spanish, French and English. It encompasses the training of general linguistic competencies for beginners (Dutch and Spanish) as well as competencies related to the use of language for specific purposes (French and English). The target audiences include students in science or business, or technicians or engineers from SMEs. In order to achieve its goals, the CAMILLE project (computer-aided multimedia interactive learning environment) is building on the expertise gained at the University of Teesside during the development of its hypermedia course in basic French. France InterActive, described in detail elsewhere. It consists often modules, each composed of four 1-h units which exploit extensively the interactive voice of both sound and video. Furthermore, hypertext has been used on a software engineering level to integrate the multimedia resources and on a pedagogical level to balance tutor- and learner-controlled navigation through the software. A basic premise is that France InterActive would provide the CAMILLE project with a state-of-the-art hardware/software platform upon which to construct its courseware.
