In the past years there has been a tremendous movement in the area of teleteaching/telelearning. Many institutions try to find solutions for distance learning that could be used especially with the Internet. Today's solutions cover synchronous scenarios like teaching using videoconference systems and asynchronous scenarios like putting teaching material on the web. JaTeK (Java based Teleteaching Kit) is a system for both telelearning and teleteaching. Teleteaching, for us, means composing teaching material and using tools for self learning, seminars as well as synchronous and asynchronous communication and cooperation. JaTeK is completely implemented in Java and consists of client components and the JaTeK servers managing material, users, groups, and permissions as well as communication and evaluation). First experiences with JaTeK have shown that there is strong demand for the system on offline media. This article describes the realized approach of a hybrid version of JaTeK that solves the problems related with its availability off-line.
