Abstract

** Invited as a paper from ED-MEDIA 2004 **

Existing educational systems built for cooperative and collaborative activities are most often based on the client/server paradigm of distributed computing. This article shows that a new model for distributed computing, Peer-to-Peer (P2P), provides new opportunities for building distributed educational applications. It begins by reviewing general aspects of distributed educational applications and the design requirements for building such systems. Then, the applicability of several existing collaborative P2P applications to educational settings is examined. The final portion of the article is devoted to a description of the features offered by Acadia P2P-based Educational eXchange (APEX), an application designed by the authors. APEX is based on the Project JXTA P2P Framework.
