Abstract

Factors such as increasing class sizes, expanding curriculum, added time
pressure on students and lecturing staff, contention for library resources and study space as
well as the cost of educational administration have prompted the application of advanced
technology to both enhance the pedagogical aspects of teaching and relieve administration
and management resources. However, no single technology is appropriate to support both
the pedagogical requirements and administrative imperatives required for course delivery in
a virtual educational environment. This paper identifies student and course delivery
management requirements and describes the seamless integration of appropriate multimedia
and groupware technologies to support course delivery within a virtual student desktop. The
paper presents the resulting experiences and lessons learned in delivering educational
services using virtual environments based on the execution of three trials involving over 300
students in Trinity College Dublin.
