Design Pattern: Context-Aware Online Course

(Salim Virani) #1

These courses emulate a master standing over the shoulders of an apprentice. They’re short interjections that are designed to help when a learner is learning-by-doing. When they’re stuck, they consult the course like a reference guide, or better yet, the course detects and anticipates their need, through a responsive mechanism.

The Sources is an example.
