The purpose of this paper is to present the design of a context–aware service for synchronous support in web–based educational systems. The proposed service support synchronous interaction among tutors and students, based on their current context, thus increasing the communication channels, the reasoning and the exchanging of ideas. As educational institutes move their content on-line and open universities support lessons through the internet, services like the proposed one are of general value.
