A lack of pedagogy in courseware can lead to learner rejection. It is therefore vital that pedagogy is a central concern of courseware construction. Courseware validation allows the course creator to specify the pedagogical rules and principles that courseware must conform to. In this paper we investigate the information needed to automate courseware validation and propose an information architecture to be used as a basis for validation. We then demonstrate an approach to courseware validation in the context of the information architecture presented.
