In this work we present an environment that aims to facilitate the presentation of multimedia content in the classroom. The principal innovation of this system with regard to other proposals is the use of a wireless-access interface implemented on a palmtop computer or PDA, an approach that has been successfully explored in other fields. For its development we presuppose that the classroom has a LAN connection to the Centre's local network through which connection to the Internet is available. The system comprises a PC connected to the network, a video projector connected to the PC with VGA and RS-232 cables, and a wireless-network access point. Teachers are supplied with PDAs using a wireless connection, with which they log on to the Centre's network.. This system enables teachers to essentially carry out two functions from the PDA: to control the operation of the PC installed in the classroom by means of a virtual PDA and a keyboard emulation, and to control the operation of the projector.
