Many multimedia applications will be designed to run on heterogeneous computing environments or will be interconnected to offer multimedia services. However multimedia incorporation proves insufficient for training and education system implementation. Its a main issue that students or training participants not only conduct and record but also have the possibility to communicate their work in an interactive learning environment. For these reasons our research efforts focus on an agent based control system telesession controller for presentation of education units in open and distributed environments. The paper presents the composition of the telepresentations consisting of different multimedia objects like text, graphics, movies, videos and also nonhypermedia objects such as executable mathematical simulation or design tasks in distributed electronic classrooms. We assume that there exists a computer network which consists of peer to peer connected local area networks. One local network represents one virtual electronic class room. The server in one of these networks plays the specific role of the on-line sender of an education session. Other virtual class rooms are active receivers of the telepresentation session
