We show how to build innovative multimodal dialogue user interfaces that integrate multiple heterogeneous Web services as data sources on the basis of the Ontology-based Dialogue Platform (ODP). More specifically, we will describe how to exploit ODPs well-defined extension points and how generic ODP processing modules can be adopted in order to support a rapid dialogue system engineering process. By means of the latest ODP-based educational information system CIRIUS and the ODP workbench, a set of Eclipse-based editors and tools, we demonstrate step-by-step along the generic dialogue processing chain what has to be done for developing a new multimodal dialogue user interface for a specific application domain.
