LOTOS aims to devise a management and authoring system for second language learning. The system is intended to facilitate the re-packaging and delivery of comprehensive language learning materials. As well as a number of software modules which provide monitoring and control facilities to tutors, and feedback to learners, the system will offer interfaces for accessing external databases, for communicating with remote tutors and learners, and for customizing LOTOS packages to suit the needs and purposes of individual learners. The design and specifications of a LOTOS demonstrator will be based upon user, market and technology studies, as well as on careful examination of relevant learning and tutoring scenarios. A consortium composed of software houses, software and telematics service providers, academic institutions, and end-users will cooperate in the definition of the system. The results of the project will be validated by, and disseminated through, an interest group comprising user and industrial organizations, which will be set up in cooperation with the ILAM1999 project.
