Hamlet goes XML: CrossAnnotationLinking and Personal learning experiences

  • XML-based technologies offer powerful resources for open source applications in the field of e-learning. The paper describes a model of hypertext as interlinked structures that can be intertwined by cross-annotation linking. This infrastructure integrates multiple perspectives and allows creating a personal learning environment. We exemplify the approach in a case study: the Hamlet project. In the course of this project, several German translations of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet have been collected and annotated. Two different annotation layers are used to achieve a cross-linking reference between the various German translations. We will describe the theoretical background of cross-annotation linking and the actual technological implementation of the system. Additionally, we will use the personas method to gain insights into the potential benefit of the system as a personal learning environment.
