This paper describes the experience and the problems solved in the process of developing and integrating advanced World Wide Web-based services into the University of Patras (Greece) system. In addition to basic network services (e.g., e-mail, file transfer protocol), the final system will integrate the following set of advanced services: a Web-based information service, intranet services to support administrative operations within the campus, distance learning by means of online teletraining via the Web, teleworking facilities, videoconferencing facilities, and applications supporting collaborative work. The paper describes in detail the services provided by the system, system architecture, and the implementation and introduction of the services to users. This project has shown that the development of the services, as well as their integration and introduction to the users, has to follow a well-defined, user-oriented implementation plan. Two figures present the representation of Web servers in the campus network and the intranet architecture. Contains 19 references. (AEF)
