The CONCERT architecture offers a set of services for building distributed education sessions. It sits between the
The purpose of the architecture is twofold:

The architecture presented in this section therefore does not provide a framework for building distributed applications in general but for a framework targeted to building distributed education sessions.
We will describe these two facets in the following subsections in turn.
