Abstract: The objective of this paper is to describe our experience in developing a tool based on web technologies, for storing, managing and providing medical courses written by professors in the medical university of Rennes. The increasing number of documents sent by professors leaded us to build a specific resource management system. We created a relational database, containing all meta information about each available document. Professors provide their courses in various formats. We use natural language parsing techniques to extract information from the text, and provide a proper semantic indexation which will be used by a medical-specific search engine. Then the content of our database is dynamically displayed on a web interface. A user’s directory identifies teachers and students, controls the access, tracks the students’ navigation and allows an on-line discussion forum. This portal contains 524 courses and we had more than 3000000 connections on it last year. We are now integrating its content using the semantic web approach in a larger project: the French Virtual Medical University.
