Abstract:In 1997, the application protocols subgroup from the Tele-Informatics and Open Systems (TIOS) research group from the faculty of Computer Science of the University of Twente was doing research on network support for distributed education. This is done in co-operation with the research group Instrumentational Technology from the Faculty of Educational Science and Technology of the University of Twente. One part of this network support consists of a Desktop Tele-classroom Conference (DTC) system. Teachers can use such a system to give lectures to students, using workstations in a network environment instead of a classroom. A first design and prototype of such a DTC system was already made in that time [1]. The DTC system discussed in this report is its successor. Part of this new system has already been made [2]. This report describes the design and implementation of a Human-Computer Interface (HCI) part for this system. This HCI -part will make it possible for end-users to use this system. Due to circumstances, this assignment was suspended in 1998 although a lot of work was already done and a working prototype of the above HCI was already made. Now, in 2007, this assignment is allowed to be continued and to be finished. Since a lot of time has passed while the IT has developed enormously, an extra design cycle, using modern knowledge and techniques, is required to actualize this assignment. This assignment is now being done within the research group ASNA (Architecture and Services of Network Applications) from the faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) of the University of Twente
