But there are other pedagogical theories about teaching and learning available than the ones applied in the development of AER systems so far. The theories picked up here are the theories of Schiller and Herbart. These theories have been chosen since they are broadly accepted and discussed in educational sciences. Additionally, a relevant difference to the theories applied so far can be assumed. In order to test the thesis that the theories of Schiller and Herbart are suitable to understand and design AER systems two methods are applied: At first, a hermeneutic analysis with a transformative intention is conducted. That is, we try to understand the function of AER systems for teaching and
learning with these theories. Secondly, we try to develop a model that considers the developed perspective with OWL.
