MUSIC WEB aims to improve the quality of music education by exploiting music-specific multimedia and distributed network technology.
MusicWeb shows a highly innovative character by its interactive set-up, international approach and a unique method for the integration of sound, text and vision. This integration enables the efficient display and manipulation of music notation within the web based environment, which is a critical area of music technology research today. The modular design and reusability of tools and materials should appeal to various target groups in all levels of education, regardless of their technological background: students and teachers in higher music education institutes will be involved, but also youth in primary and secondary schools and music professionals in the framework of continuing (adult) education.
The basic technological framework of MusicWeb has been developed with the support of the CONNECT Programme. In the framework of the eLearning Initiative, MusicWeb would like to:
- expand the number of music educational modules
- develop a larger user community through dissemination of project results on a European level through the participation ofthe European Association of Conservatoires (AEC), the publication of several on-line handbooks and specially targeted workshops for teachers and students, which willenable participants to develop customised on-line educational materials.
