The proposed paper aims at designing a distributed educational platform that is capable of assisting users to acquire knowledge and develop abilities through on line interaction with teachers and fellow-workers. The main objectives are to provide an intelligent, adaptive environment for learning, enhancing knowledge acquisition rate and developing abilities of disabled children. It is a collaborative environment that will enable users to practice along with others in order to acquire collective experience and fortify the group`s overall performance while minimizing the geographical constants. On the other hand, it can also be used on an individual basis and act as an intelligent self-training home assistant that enables users to improve their capabilities. Furthermore one of the systems main advantages is its capability of monitoring the emotional status of all actors and presenting visual enhancers in order to optimize their focusing capabilities and their performance. For this purpose the monitoring and recording of the user`s psychological status is essential.
