The EFTWeb is a World Wide Web based system that allows the interaction between users and contents. The users can be students and teachers that place, modify and use available contents. The system provides the means to control security, intellectual property rights (ipr), and billing issues, giving both type of users the necessary tools to access the system, prepare materials and use them. One important facility associated with the system is its ability to create contexts. The creation of context is made possible by the combined use of thesaurus technology and referencing content by recurring to dynamic catalogues. The paper defends the importance that context may have when providing usable environments to support education, learning and training activities.
