AbstractIn this paper an innovative platform to manage e-learning activities, virtual courses and related multimedia databases is discussed. MATRIX 3, an active web-db system, is presented. The system, ASP and Java Technology based, has been developed in the ENEA Usability Lab, Casaccia Research Center, in collaboration with the University of Rome "La Sapienza". The system allows the web end-user to access different multimedia web pages and virtual courses produced exclusively through queries to relational and distributed databases. MATRIX 3, finalised both to manage e-learning activities and the online study, provides advanced communication between docent/student, web lessons and seminars. An overview of how the system works and of the complex system architecture is given. Then the experimental results, using MATRIX 3 in e-Learning experience, and the final comments are discussed.
