Many universities are taking advantage of distance education technology in order to provide more learning opportunities for students. This paper describes the design of an interactive classroom environment called White Board. For ease of navigability and access to instructional material, the software is designed with multiple windows and tabs in the basic user interface. The design enables users to access all course data without having to navigate away from the homepage. Windows are updated individually to avoid refreshing the whole page when changing tabs or loading material. Principles of design, results and future directions are presented.
