Abstract

The objective of this chapter is to describe the Postcourse project, which is an e-course on database design. It can be reached via the World Wide Web and allows authorized students to create and work with their own databases placed on the university server. The system has been created from scratch, as no authoring package offered tools to interact with databases, which is the innovative feature of the project. The evaluation performed after the system had been used for two years proved that it is a valuable material for self-paced work.
