It is possible to use this invariant to automatically classify a whole bank if the abilities of a group of students are known, or estimated by other means.

This approach was initially effective due to two factors: œ The developer only had to manage the conceptual understanding of the outcome desired œ The simplicity of the functionality required. Now the complexity of the technical and functional requirements of the outcomes or Web-sites require a database design approach be taken in the building of the underpinning storage site for Web-sites. The amount of resources stored has become unwieldy in a number of instances. A bottom up approach to the design of the site needs to be enabled.

This design enables an increased flexibility in usage as demanded by the market. The educational components are then sequenced and combined by the navigational pathways created for the online delivery. Order of delivery is scheduled via the pathways of the site and content of the subject by the addressable packages. The navigational pathways created provide alternative scheduling or flexible delivery of knowledge content. The choice of knowledge expertise, assesment mechanisms, scheduling and mode of delivery are designed by the academic.
