Different uses – different types of hypermedia folders
Hypermedia folders on the PCW Portal are grouped into three main categories:
1. Folders for higher learning, primarily reading lists for teachers and/or students (undergraduate or graduate). For the teacher, a reading list is an important educational resource that can be used for a course as a set of video clips, which students can work on in class or at home. For the student, reading lists are sources of information that compliment material covered in class. The advantage is that they can be studied at the student’s leisure.
2. Folders for professionals – practitioners or connoisseurs – of a field or an issue seeking specialized and reliable information about their respective areas. They are republications as thematic folders, primarily of interviews with researchers, scientific conferences, or research seminars.
3. Folders on raising awareness and introducing anyone interested to cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue, especially adolescents. Republications in this third group have more diverse uses for teaching or informal learning: for initiating adolescents to one specific culture or the history of a people; for enhancing courses or workshops on intercultural communication and mediation; for initiating tourists or other travelers to another cultural universe, etc.
