WEB based learning today is being widely used in almost every educational facility [2, 3]. In the last years, all conceivable use cases that need to be carried out in such a teaching mode have been defined and the features a modern educational web site needs to offer are very clear. One of the most important aspects of such distant learning is the data exchange between students and teachers.
In this paper, we analyze several practical scenarios for such exchange of files where students apply their theoretical knowledge for solving practical tasks. More specifically, we discuss so-called "myFiles", "Group Lockers", "Project", "Authoring Room", "File Exchange" and "Course Diary" paradigms.
MyFiles is a system that allows each student to upload files into a personal internet repository where the files become available for a teacher.
Group Lockers and Project are usage scenarios that allow uploading data and making it available for a teacher, by a group of students.
The Authoring Room scenario provides an environment for online collaborative authoring of textual documents.
The File Exchange scenario deals with a structured internet repository that can be accessed and edited by a big number of students.
The Course diary is a list of tasks that are supposed to be accomplished by students throughout the course. The definition of tasks may significantly vary, but generally each task requires performing certain elements of a database application design, for example, developing a database schema, proving that the database schema is in particular normal form, implementing a database transaction, etc.
The goal in this research work is to describe the architecture, and specify data uploading functionality of a modern Learning Management System (LMS).
