This paper describes two computer-based interactive projects which are being tested at the SSLMIT of the University of Trieste. IRIS – the Interpreter’s Resources Information System- was designed by A. Carabelli and F. Fioravanti to guarantee an open and flexible architecture capable of bringing together both traditional teaching methods and modern multimedia technologies, as well as allowing for the experimentation in new training techniques for interpreters and translators. It is an interactive system aimed at providing teachers and students with a virtually unlimited database of written, audio and video material in different languages. InterprIT is a didactic tool created on the basis of a specific methodological approach designed to guide the student towards the acquisition of the cognitive tool needed to develop a rational note-taking technique. The fundamental assumption of the application is a guided approach to discourse analysis.
