Raúl Rojas, Dan-El Neil Vila Rosado, Margarita Esponda – 2013
This chapter presents a new interactive e-learning application called PowerChalk. PowerChalk has arisen as the result from the analysis of the evolution of Information Systems Design Theory for E-Learning; it was designed to resolve an important limitation of current design methods and e-learning systems: adaptability. Modular programming is the design technique used in PowerChalk to improve human computer interaction with the management of different types of data in order to have positive effect on both learning score and learning satisfaction. PowerChalk works like a Transaction Processing System in order to support collaboration, communication, creativity and learning through a collection of organized modules. The characteristics of PowerChalk facilitate developing of competencies for using multimedia technologies in any learning session, taking into account the teacher and student perspective. The goal of PowerChalk is to provide a robust, reliable, usable and sustainable multimedia technology for collaborative learning.
