Professor Rod Sims has been working in the field of computers and learning since 1979, commencing with the implementation of Control data's PLATo system into Australia. Since then he has worked in all facets of computers and learning - as
developer, teacher, academic and researcher. His extensive writings have focused on the effectiveness of learner computer interactions and his current research activities are assessing the use of collaborative tools in massively multi-user environments.
Abstract: Overall, the authors present a succinct argument for the learning community supported by complex semantic networks. To substantiate the potential of their vision, they present a case study in the domain of global warming to illustrate the ways in which knowledge charts (representations of community knowledge), knowledge neighbourhoods, and knowledge navigation (tools to assist processing of
knowledge) might be implemented. In doing so, they highlight the importance for learning systems and environments to be able to support the complex learning requirements of the individual knowledge seeker.
