In all of them, web based work is in progress to a different extent. Various material pertaining 
to the teaching touching on all these courses has been placed on the web. All the courses are at 
the high school to college level. More courses will be added in the coming semesters.

online. The philosophy of NKI Nettskolen has always been to offer programs that are 
independent of time and space through a system that facilitates flexible communication for 
administrative, social, and teaching purposes. 
Pedagogisk Senter [67] (
http://www.karmoyped.no/transpro
) in Norway reports to have 30 40 
students in 5 6 courses that cover all subject areas as cross curricular projects in primary and 
lower secondary schools. The initiative is characterized by: 
1.  Disseminate experience and develop strategies in using the project method as a way of 
learning. 
2.  Implement the project method in transnational projects 
3.  Disseminate experience and develop strategies for using ICT in transnational teleprojects. 
4.  Design and plan involvement in future transnational teleprojects. 
5.  Educational application of Internet with students, peers and course organizers. 
After the initial in service course, participants will be given an online course on the 
educational use of the Internet. This course is a collaborative course involving the Royal 
Danish School of Education in Denmark, the Highland Council in Scotland, Charles 
University in Tsjekkia, and Pedagogisk Senter in Norway. A good example of a transnational

UNED   Departamento de Ingenieria Electrica, Electronica y de Controlo [82] 
(
http://www.uned.es/proyectos/ing/demos.htm
) 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.
