Development of a framework for Internet based education has demonstrated the use of Oracle tools for the use of delivery of education on the World Wide Web. This also has proved that for an efficient dynamic education scenario, the use of a database-based system with a proper retrieval system is required.

We have designed the system on an Oracle backend system with Designer/2000. Developer/2000 helped us with the design and development of the system. Oracle Web Server 2.1 helped us with the retrieval of the web pages.

The entire design of the system and the reasoning behind the system has been documented. Appendix A provides a glossary of currently used terminology in the field of Internet based systems. The Appendix B provides actual screen prints of the Designer/2000 phases of design, Developer/2000 graphical user interface screens and the actual code involved in the design and development of the system. The fact that the entire system is based on the Oracle Repository makes the system very dynamic in terms of the data and can be used to present the student with a course material rapidly.
