ABSTRACT
<p>In this paper we present a teacher interface for a computer supported educational system that we are developing. This interface was developed over a PDA with wireless network connectivity to be carried by the teacher into the classroom.</p> <p>The first prototype implemented an interface with a virtual keyboard and mouse in order to remotely manage the classroom server and its peripherals. Additionally other features were included, such a remote video projector control and an agenda application.</p> <p>However, users had problems with regard to direct text introduction and mouse sensibility. Knowledge of the domain was acquired from experts in the field of education, and as a result, a new set of project requirements were defined and a second version of the interface has been developed. Its task-oriented design improves usability through minimizing the need for a virtual keyboard and mouse utilization.</p> <p>This system is currently in use in two classrooms in our university.</p>
