In Chapter 3, we have discussed the issues of planning for an online computer lab. From the collected information, the online lab designer can get the users’ views about the project. The next task is to design a lab that will meet the design objectives. To accomplish this task, you need to first develop a model of the online computer lab. Then, use the model to verify if the objectives have been achieved. Modeling allows you to select appropriate architecture for the lab project. During the modeling process, you need to illustrate the flow of activities. We will discuss the modeling issues in this chapter. We will first investigate the types of lab architectures and analyze how lab architecture fits a specific design objective. For each of the architectures, we will discuss the strategies to select technologies to be used to construct the lab.
