Multiplatform technology: idTV and Internet

Would you like to see a sample of idTV screens ?

How does the multi-platform technology work?

The eLearning Place is a multi-platform learning environment: it communicates and runs across both the Internet and idTV (interactive digital television). Course construction and administration is carried out via the Internet while learner enrolment, course registration, learner support and courses can occur across both platforms. For instance, a learner on digital TV can log on the chat and talk to someone who is logged on to the course via the Internet.

The image below demonstrates how communication occurs via the two platforms.
