This thesis presents an adaptive multicast routing protocol called a Topology-Aware Polymorphic Multicast Routing Protocol (TAPMRP) for use in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs). TAPMRP is proposed to serve E-Learning classroom (ELC) environments, which are generally characterised by minimal topology changes and distinct topologies. The research is motivated by the need to support students' learning efforts with MANET multicast services such as video streaming, offline websites and file sharing in a reliable and efficient manner.
