Knowledge Web book launchChris Valentine, Tuesday 13 October 1998 | Annotate
The Knowledge Web: Learning and Collaborating on the Net is the first major book describing a significant portion of KMi's research in one volume.
The book, published this week by Kogan Page, was edited by Marc Eisenstadt and Tom Vincent, and includes contributions from 23 authors, mostly working in or directly affiliated with the Knowledge Media Institute.
The individual contributions reflect the diverse range of new developments in learning technology by bringing together researchers in the learning and cognitive sciences, multimedia enabling technologies for disabled learners, and artificial intelligence. In addition, there is a complementary World Wide Web site which contains up-to-date examples of the work through which readers can explore and engage in on-line experimentation.
