Abstract

This paper presents a novel, integrated teaching and learning tool - called digital
lecture board - which takes into account the requirements of synchronous, computer-based
distance education. For almost two years, the TeleTeaching project Mannheim-Heidelberg
has been using video conferencing tools for transmitting lectures and seminars. These tools
prove to be insufficient for the purpose of teleteaching since they are not powerful enough to
support team work, they are not flexible enough for the use of media, and are somewhat
difficult to handle by non-experts. We discuss shortcomings of the existing tools and
disclose features we had in mind while designing the digital lecture board. Embedded in a
teaching and learning system, the digital lecture board even allows for asynchronous usage
modes, for instance, the preparation of lectures. Moreover, we cover implementation issues
of the current prototype.
