Abstract: Recently Web Based Training (WBT) starts to be widely used as a new way of teaching. Unfortunately, this mode of teaching imposes new requirements and constraints. It has made the creation of learning material a complex and demanding task for the instructors as it takes much time and demands a multitude of skills, in particular technical skills that must be developed and continuously updated. Hence, we propose a collaborative authoring methodology based on division of labour as a way to produce WBTs where the processes of production are clearly separated to meet the existing and needed skills of persons involved in WBT production. This paper presents an efficient method to support instructor’s guidance during the first phase of the WBT production called the Macro Design using the Rhetorical Structure Theory (RST) and the taxonomies we developed.

Keywords: E-learning, collaborative authoring, instructional design support tool, knowledge modelling, production of web based training, semantic design, taxonomies
