A Proposal of an Architecture for Educational Environments

Juan Enrique Garrido, Victor M. R. Penichet, María D. Lozano

Abstract

Current technology allows educational environments to offer teachers and students the functionality and the information required at any time, whichever place and circumstance. Concretely, these environments mix three remarkable features: ubiquity, context-awareness and collaboration. In this way, the system to be deployed can avoid oversights when performing tasks. In addition, students can be motivated through technologies that they usually use in their daily life. In this paper, we present the definition of a system architecture, which is the first step to obtain the proposed environment. The architecture presents both a software architecture and a hardware architecture. The software architecture shows the layers in which the system distributes functionality and in-formation.The hardware architecture shows the hardware components to be used, such as smartphones, server, communication elements, etc.
