The paper describes the work carried out in Strathclyde University to web-enable MATLAB, a commonly used package in engineering applications, for Internet-based distance co-working and collaboration with full sharing functionality by all users and at all times. The software was developed with platform-independence in mind and has undergone several updates. Additional software to enhance functionality is still being developed and integrated into the original system. The paper provides an overview of the development known as WebClass.
