In recent years, the possibilities for distance teaching in engineering education have increased tremendously. The widespread availability of the Internet has allowed the use of rich media over long distances. As visual connectivity improves, an opportunity to enrich and rethink the place of learning design in on-line and distance education is presenting itself. This paper presents a case study of development of digital video to be used in e-learning postgraduate engineering courses. Videos should be used in autonomous DVD or embedded in hypermedia learning objects. Multilingual, interactive questionnaires and mixing use of animations and real images are some features of the video. The use of these video is put to the test in a postgraduate course on Solar Energy and other Renewable Energies in Buildings.
