dc.description.abstract This thesis describes Connexions, a powerful new architecture for managing web-based educational materials. Connexions, consisting of five components, enables course instructors to take advantage of the cross-linked nature of the Web and helps students visualize the relationships between concepts. The first component is a pool of interlinked content modules written in the Connexions Markup Language (CNXML), an XML-derived language for educational content. Each module covers a single concept and links to related concepts. The second component is a central repository to store and provide access to the modules. The third component consists of tools to assist module authors in creating content and interfacing to the repository. The fourth component is a course construction tool that allows instructors to author course materials by selecting and customizing a sequence of content modules. The fifth component is a navigational tool that shows students their location along the course-path.
