A Web-Application for building Common Cartridge Learning Objects
Abstract: Research in the field of education frequently aims at improving practices in classroom settings. The bridge between well-researched lesson scenarios and the application of them in practice cannot always be established. Both, research and practice can benefit from each other if bidirectional information transfer between research and practice is possible. During research activities for a PhD thesis in the field of computer science education at secondary school level, the idea emerged to develop a web application to establish such a connection. Therefore, lesson scenarios were developed and refined in an interaction of practice and research with multiple case studies. Each of these scenarios was subsequently modified along the Common Cartridge standard. This paper describes the specification of this course format for online learning platforms and the web application, which was developed for the flexibility to use and modify these scenarios for an individual implementation.
