Introduction and Implementation of a Multi-leveled E-learning Environment Based on the Open Content Development Model Principles

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 716)


In our paper we introduce a new multi-leveled e-learning environment, called Sysbook. It is an open-access surface, available on the internet for any users. Its main topic covers the field of systems and control, some mathematical and even philosophical sciences. The purpose of the Sysbook is to present systems and controls on different levels, addressing readers of different backgrounds and interests. There are four surfaces (levels): “Comics”, “What we are talking about”, “Control course” and “Mathematical representations, examples”. In the same time two of them are displayed on the screen. These surfaces are extended with case studies for different fields and a student area where the users can also contribute. We would like to show that this conception can also be used in other fields of interest.
