Abstract

The Hellenic Open University (HOU) has embarked on a large-scale effort to enhance its textbook-based material with content that is conducive to mature students' learning needs and supports the basic tenets of distance learning. It has selected the development and deployment of streaming media based content as one of its key priorities and now faces the challenge of setting up a framework that allows for the production-level creation, distribution and consumption of content, as well as the issue of evaluating its effort in terms of technological, educational and organisational knowledge gained. To assist in the effort, our approach has also delivered a custom tool for the development of such content.
