Abstract

The prime objective of the Greek School Network (GSN) is the provisioning of a network and services infrastructure for the interconnection of school laboratories of informatics, so that modern educational and pedagogical methods and models can be applied. The GSN is currently delivering a wide range of educational services to users, ranging from forums and instant messaging to video-on-demand and teleconferencing. Managed and operated by a consortium of educational and research public bodies, the network adopts flexible, interoperable, secure solutions in order to construct operational mechanisms for the support of the educational services and considers the open model for service development, deployment, delivery and management. The current paper presents an overview of the service infrastructure constructed to address the problem of delivering catholic educational services across the school domain. It presents some services such as the asynchronous and synchronous tele-education and virtual classroom services and the underlying service layers that provide the infrastructure for user management, security and integration.
