In conjunction with the technological advancements of Telecommunications and Information Technology and the outbreak of the World Wide Web (WWW), the production of educational software is undergoing a shift towards the shared resource paradigm. Recognizing the need expressed by people with special needs and special education teachers in enabling students to access such resources, this paper describes the design and the implementation of a Web-based, open system for the effective support of the teaching process of non-orthographic languages for people with special needs. There will be a discussion on user requirements, system specifications and characteristics as well as the system's architecture. Features that enable learner centered education and fulfill teachers' needs to prepare, organize and update the training material in a cost-effective manner and focus on content specification and other high level tasks, while developing courses, will also be mentioned, followed by reached conclusions and plans for future work.
