Architecting Multimedia Environments for Teaching
June 2005 (vol. 38 no. 6)
pp. 57-64

Despite today's many technological enhancements, most teachers still rely on well-established primitive aids such as the chalkboard, one of history's earliest teaching tools. To help integrate computational devices into the classroom and take advantage of the capabilities they offer, the authors propose building a reliable, ubiquitous, adaptable, and easy-to-use technology-integrating black box to support a multimedia environment. Placing this system atop a service-oriented component model implemented on a platform-independent layer such as a virtual machine will provide the adaptability developers need, offering loosely coupled components that will accommodate a nonmonolithic approach and ease reuse. By reusing and enhancing components, the system will become increasingly reliable, while a building-block architecture will keep it manageable.
