UNED Departamento de Ingenieria Electrica, Electronica y de Controlo 
) focuses on design and development of a
distributed educational environment for distance teaching scenarios. The DEMOS project
seeks to increase the number, and quality, of all the possibilities to provide administrative and
academic support to UNED s students. The professors responsible for the project have pinned
down three possible potential DEMO users: based students, based students with better means,
and center based students. Generally, the DEMO project will function in the following way: It
will have an information and administration office. The users will find in this office an access
authorization, general information about DEMOS and a detailed reference of the services
available. Having gone through the information and administration office, the student can
access several sections within the UNED, for example: Virtual Library, Virtual Bookstore,
and Distributed Virtual Classroom. In the latter section the student is connected online
through computer terminals. This allows the student to share applications, tools and material
(text, programs, images, audio, and video). The student may also make multi point
videoconferences. The teacher s virtual office is also important because of the tele tutoring
student/teacher service. At last, the student can access the Coffee Room where contacts with
other students can be done developing discussion groups, newsgroups via e mail.
