The need for virtual information managers in education

, ,

Computers & Education Volume 49, Number 2, ISSN 0360-1315 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


In this paper, the authors analyse how educational institutions behave in relation with the contents available through the Web. They also reflect on the features of the currently available information managers, from an educational point of view. They found there is a lack of tools for information management at low scale when it has to be used as a resource for teaching and learning whether at secondary or university level. Finally, they propose a solution, which consists of naming a ‘small virtual educational library’ (SVEL), and they show how it works in Physics education context.
