Abstract

This work describes an Internet-based, meta-cognitive tool named LEO (Learning Environment Organizer) that is based upon extensions to Concept Maps, and is designed to help course creators visualize and plan course organizations. LEO permits the user to create a novel type of course description that avoids the arbitrary linear sequences of topics typical of traditional courses. Additionally, the tool facilitates exploration of alternative course organizations. The tool is part of a software suite named CmapTools (CmapTools, 2003) that can be used to build Internet-based, multimedia knowledge models of a domain. This paper presents a description of LEO and an example of a course that was designed using the tool.
