The importance of the Extensible Markup Language (XML) technology family
in the field of Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) can not be denied. The Instructional
Management Systems Project (IMS) for example provides a learning resource XML binding
specification. Considering this specification and other implementations using XML to
represent learning contents in different ways, we developed a new approach to use an
XML based representation of learning objectives during the development process of a
Computer Supported Learning Environment (CSLE). Identifying and representing learning
objectives is an integral part of the Essen Learning Model (ELM), a generic development
model supporting developers, educators, and users on different levels of educational
activities. We illustrate how to use XML data in the context of learning objectives to support
the implementation of learning environments.
