Abstract

The rapid expansion of the Internet has finally brought a wider availability of large bandwidth connections reaching the homes. This means that the content that can be delivered through the Internet is dramatically changing. We run an experiment of eight whole university courses: we web-cast the lectures, and also we made them asynchronously available both on-line and off-line (on CD's). We based our experiment two software systems: the first one, called e-Presence, was developed at the University of Toronto, Canada. The second, called LODE, was developed at the University of Trento: it was inspired by the experience gathered using e-Presence, and incorporates a series of requirements that aim at overcoming some limitations we encountered when using the first system. In this paper we describe requirements and architecture of the LODE System.
