Once completed, the materials must then be delivered to users in an integrated fashion for use on their own local computers and over the Web. The materials may include audio-video, cataloging records, transcriptions, annotations, associated reference materials, and possible other associated materials.
One of the most basic decisions is whether one wants to deliver the materials over the Web for online use, or on physical media such as CDs for local offline use. These are two fundamentally different modes of delivery, and unfortunately usually require the creation of two different systems. Thus even if both modalities are offered, most likely the functionalities and interfaces will be significantly different. However, one can design a Web system so that one can download the individual pieces for usage offline, even though the overall integrated presentation cannot be accessed other than online.
