This project demonstrates a prototype of online course presentation system. The purpose of this project is to show that by applying latest multimedia, UI and Web technologies, online course presentation could be more convenient effective and attractive. This Online Course Presentation System is a web-based system used to present the course lectures slides and texts via the Internet. The system is implemented in Java. An applet running in the browser with the powerful multimedia support of Java Media Framework 2.1 (JMF), seamlessly links the applet and Oracle 8i database server using the JDBC technology. The intuitive GUI design makes it looks like a book. Using the system is like reading books. You can randomly choose to any course (book), any chapter or any topic to study. The intelligent interactive quiz subsystem is a unique feature of the system.

This project presents the architectural design of the Online Course Presentation System, the design and implementation of client part GUI and server part database. The key to a successful online system is GUI. So a great deal of effort is focused on the usability and usability testing of this system. Currently (2002 spring term) the system is being used by about 30 students in the Graduate Diploma Program. Finally, future work related to this system is presented.
