Towards a Multisemiotic and Multimodal Editor
Keywords:mobile devices, multimodality, multisemiotic, software requirements
Mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones, are increasingly present in the everyday life of young people. Despite such insertion, the use of those devices in scenarios such as m-learning is still a missed opportunity. In a previous work we verified that an editor that aggregates various kinds of media can help students in their studies. With that motivation in mind, we realized the Multimodal Editor – a useful tool to leverage the multimedia authorship. In this paper we describe our trajectory toward the Editor – requirements gathering, implementation, challenges, usage scenario and evaluation.
