1 PLATO - A Cookbook for Learning Networks

1.1 Learning Networks
Within the scope of this paper, we use the term "Learning Network" to signify a number of persons and resources assembled for the purpose of accumulating knowledge by means of learning processes ( Harasim, Hiltz and Turoff 1995). Instructors, students, experts, learning teams, or guest participants may all become members of this organisation. In this way, a community may evolve which shares a common language, a common set of values and objectives. This human network is backed up by a network of information and knowledge resources.
1.2 Purpose of PLATO
PLATO is a join project together with SWISSCOM in Zurich. The purpose of the project is to develop didactic guidelines for learning methods based on Internet-based Environments. The didactic guidelines provide a broad framework by means of which learning processes can be set up within a learning framework, and which gives guidance as to the planning of learning arrangements. The Cookbook should be published electronically as an Hypermedia System. The purpose is to show what kinds of instruction and pedagogical approach are to be recommended for what situations, which roles (e.g. subject expert, moderator) should be involved and what are the essential steps to plan, interact and evaluate the different learning methods.The main points of focus are to give checklists and "recipes" for learning methods using new media. The metaphor of a "Cookbook" helps to realise the project providing a practical and useful guide enriched with many concrete examples. Within the PLATO Cookbook, three main layers are fundamental in order to permit the integration of various learning arrangements:
