Abstract

New technologies, like Multimedia Database Management Systems (MMDBMS),
enable new possibilities for education. In the OMODIS-LoD project, we have developed a
Lecture-on-Demand (LoD) prototype that is based on the Object-Oriented Database System
ObjectStore and a new data model for multimedia data, called TOOMM. The prototype
manages teaching material that has been originally used for CD-ROM based distance
education of medical students at the University of Oslo. This paper describes the original CDROM
based legacy application and the LoD system, as well as the experiences with the
process of extracting teaching material from the legacy application and converting and
integrating it into the LoD system.
