This article describes the development of a task-based framework for providing learning within the workplace using networked multimedia. A philosophy is adopted for the framework that builds on the recognition that tasks must reflect the social process of learning as considered by Vygotsky (1978). This takes into account the role of dialogue in the building of knowledge for an individual and for a group, following the ideas of the conversational framework (Laurillard, 1993), and allowing for future vicarious forms of learning (Mayes & Dineen, 1999). Tasks are supported by links between people as well as activities, material, and the opportunity to find further resources. The framework was provided as a set of guidelines within a manual and also instantiated as a prototype system that represented the course using XML (eXtensible Markup Language). This representation allowed flexible delivery and the system has been used to support undergraduate courses within a university as well as trials within the semiconductor industry.
