Abstract

Digital media environment has been changed significantly during the last few years. The huge progress in communication technology and the launch of digital television have open up new opportunities for distance learning. Interactive digital television is providing a new and flexible learning environment. The Industrial IT Laboratory of Helsinki University of Technology has made research in utilising digital TV as a learning environment for University courses and the students have had a chance to study using digital TV since September 2002.
