Figure 1: Components of the Learning Environment
The table in figure 1 attempts a summary according to Sandberg's functions. Each column is covered! - We ``can do it''. But a LOT of development work is still needed. The role of server-side scripts (e.g. see [Kay et Kummerfeld, 1994] or [Brusilovsky, 1995] for recent work) or client-side computing (à la ``HotJava'') is still not clear though. ``Smart server-side computing'' (e.g. replacing a standard WWW server) by a specialized educational server is another road that has not be full explored. There is always a trade-off between using the Web as a closed system, using it to distribute software, using it in combination with other software, etc. Only time will tell us what solution is best for what case.
