In this paper, we present the objectives and the services of Eurydices, an extranet-based system aiming to teach virtual classes of geographically dispersed academic participants. Eurydices has unique features enabling it to cover efficiently all aspects of tele-training environments for the Greek Universities Network (GUNet). The system integrates an extranet with advanced distance learning applications offering on-line and off-line content delivery. In this way, the sense of collaboration among the participants is intensified. In total, compared to traditional distance learning tools the system's ultimate advantages will comprise its training efficiency as well as its ability to reach more students.
