The multimedia history textbook


The multimedia textbook (MBook) developed by Waltraud Schreiber’s research group was an interactive and customizable study- and workbook for a classroom setting which reveals its own principles of construction and was prototypically developed for history lessons. Technically and didactically this browser-based and hyperactive book was a new development for competence-based teaching.

The main potential of the MBook lied in the possibility of its use both as a promotional tool as well as a research instrument. The project scientifically examined the capability of the multimedia textbook.

The project examined whether and how the instructional and extra-curricular utilization data can be applied towards the clarification of skills development.
