Tsekeridou, Sofia, Tiropanis, Thanassis, Rorris, Dimitris, Constantinos, Makropoulos, Serif, Tacha and Stergioulas, Lampros (2008) Satellite-enabled educational services specification and requirements analysis based on user feedback International Journal of Knowledge and Learning, 4, (2/3), pp. 272-284.

Record type: Article


Advanced tele-education services provision in remote geographically dispersed user communities (such as agriculture and maritime), based on the specific needs and requirements of such communities, implies significant infrastructural and broadband connectivity requirements for rich media, timely and quality-assured content delivery and interactivity. The solution to broadband access anywhere is provided by satellite-enabled communication infrastructures. This paper aims to present such satellite-based infrastructures that are capable of addressing the core requirements of rich media educational services in remote areas. The paper proceeds to examine a set of services that will realise such satellite-based distance learning systems and to assess the targeted users’ interest in such services. The presented work is undertaken within the framework of the EU-funded Broadband Access Satellite Enabled Education (BASE2) project. Furthermore, requirements analysis, based on the Volere template (Robertson) and on user feedback, is undertaken.
