Abstract

The composition of the telepresentations consisting of most different multimedia objects and nonhypermedia objects in distributed electronic classrooms is presented. A computer network which consists of peer to peer connected local are networks is described. One local network represents one virtual electronic classroom. The server in one of these networks plays the specific role of the online sender of an education session. Other virtual class rooms are active receivers of the telepresentation session. The control system coordinates and synchronizes the transmission of presentation units coming from different sources. The control system is modeled using a multi agent based formalism which introduces three basic agent types.
