The Integrated Content Environment (ICE) is a distributed, web based content management application for preparing text-intensive courses for higher education, both for delivery electronically and in print. This paper explores the requirements and motivation for the system, why it needed to be developed in-house, and the use of a variety of standards. After a brief system overview, the first topic discussed is the requirements, followed by the technical architecture of the system and some other noteworthy architectural design decisions. Discussion continues with a brief overview of the development methodology, and sections on installing and using ICE, concluding with potential future research and development work.
