From 1995 the METID Center of Milan's Polytechnic School promotes and supports the use of innovative teaching methods. METID's purpose is to foster the development and application of new methodologies and innovative tools for university didactics. METID's main mission is therefore to help the Polytechnic professors in innovating their teaching methods using new computer technologies, telecommunications and multimedia. In the course of the years METID has become an important service center aimed
more » ... at developing its own teaching projects as regards computer science, data communication and multimedia, as well as cooperative projects both at national and international level. Abstract The aim of this article is to show the possibility of building an Interactive Distance Learning Environment, starting from a "static" multimedia archive. A prototype of this model, developed by METID inside the "On-line Courses System" platform, will be described with all its available functionalities. Afterwards the criteria adopted for the different user profiles will be discussed. Finally, several examples and applications will be presented in order to demonstrate the strategic approach for distance learning education.
