Summary: Using the National Engineering Education Delivery System
as the Foundation for Building a Test-Bed Digital Library for
Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology Education
Final Report for NSF Grant IIS–9817406
(October 1, 1998 to September 30, 1999; no-cost extension to March 1, 2000)
Activities
1. Developed a test-bed SMETE Digital Library
System Design
As users in the digital learning space will be both instructors and learners, we designed the test-
bed to be a focal point to locate resources and interact with other community members in
multiple modes (e.g., learner-to-learner, instructor-to-learner or peer-to-peer). The core
infrastructure of the database, software and hardware are designed to be flexible and scalable to
support a wide range of uses and target audiences. We redesigned the existing NEEDS (National
Engineering Education Delivery System)
database from the ground up to support
modular services and to function as a portal
or gateway to the digital learning resources.
The services and infrastructure are designed
to support our existing engineering education
user base while at the same time allow us to
