Abstract: The paper's main objective is to present a Virtual School (VS), built to provide an infrastructure to develop new methodologies to assist classroom teaching and distance learning in Engineering. The environment of the Virtual School encourages exploration of teaching experiments in search of new pedagogical approaches and methodologies to improve and innovate web-based learning and teaching in the classroom. Based on the experience of graduate students in Information Technology (IT) resources of computer graphics in its broadest definition were used, involving CAD technologies for modeling, animation, text, multimedia and hypertext, photos, pictures and images, which make the visual appeal a powerful tool in improving the teaching-learning relationship. The exploitation of programming languages for the web to build sites, portals and web contents has also been accomplished. One of the most important technological aspects of the Virtual School and of the digital contents is the use of systems management database (DBMS) for the creation, modification, storage and data management. The use of video and sound technologies, videoconferencing and collaboration environments and the construction of a Web platform for e-learning are also part of the goals of this project. Finally, some case studies on web contents based on innovative technologies is presented for distance learning and to assist in classroom teaching of Structural Engineering. (More)
