Martins, Protasio D.; Maidantchik, Carmen; Lemos, Leandro T.; Manoel de Seixas, Jose
Changes in the global economy and the extensive use of the internet implied a conceptual redefinition of the working and social structure, and consequently an enhancement of educational systems that instruct engineers. This paper presents a repository of remote multimedia information such as formatted or non-formatted documents, hypertext pages, figures and images. The main goal is to provide an electronic directory to organize knowledge that can be easily accessed to support the elaboration of virtual lessons, seminars, and training courses. The project aims to improve productivity, enhancing communication among students and educators, and providing a common environment in which to place interdisciplinary engineering objects. The proposed system being developed by the Ocean Engineering Department at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro within the Engineering Education Restructure Project supports distance education and can be used as another learning vehicle.
