In this paper, we present a web-based Distributed
Virtual Learning Environment (DVLE) that could be used
as a sophisticated tool for distance education and
collaboration between teachers and students. We design
and develop this application and the corresponding
Graphical User Interface (GUI) as a proposal that aims
at providing an integrated communicational environment
which supplies the communicative needs of an
educational community, using the latest
telecommunication and multimedia information
processing technology. The environment that we propose
can be used for virtual lectures, virtual conferences, and
exchange of useful material and experiences among
teachers and students. It is a web-based application that
is being developed as client/server architecture using
standard protocols and technologies such as HTTP,
HTML, Java and VRML.
