The research and development of computer-based, networked learning
environments will be built around electronic communication and collaboration services that
will play a significant role in the improvement of the learning procedure. Applications of this
kind provide tutors and trainees with the ability of continual, close and efficient cooperation,
en masse as well as individually. The goal of this work is the presentation of a communication
environment that was developed in the framework of Odysseas project. The flexible design
and implementation of basic communication services, accompanied with a friendly user
interface, comprise an ergonomic environment and ensure the introduction of information
technology in education as a daily communication and collaboration tool.
