Overview

Connexions is a web-based document creation and management system for education and research materials. There are two parts toConnexions: a Content Commons that contains these materials and the software tools necessary to create, manage, and access thesematerials. A tour of the workings of Connexions and its parts appears on the Connexionsweb page, under the "About" tab.

From its inception, Connexions was designed to allow the collaborative development and free availability of material.Instructors and authors can modify this material for any educational purpose. Connexions offers Free/Open Source softwaretools to help students, instructors, and authors manage these information assets for sharing and advancing knowledge tobenefit the global educational community. All of this is accomplished through the use of the Creative Commons Attribution license .

There are three general categories of Connexions users:

  • Students - who use Connexions to access information on-line, to prepare for their classes.
  • Authors - who enter content into Connexions in document files called modules.
  • Instructors - who build courses, which are documents created by linking related modules together in a specific order.
