Distributed, real-time multimedia applications on the Internet permit users to cooperate in new and more interesting ways for collaborative teamwork and net-based learning. The mStar environment features an agent-based architecture, implemented in Java, which preserves compatibility with the dominant Mbone paradigm for IP multicast. The shared software environment provides an integrated solution for generating, presenting, scoring, and editing media in collaborative applications. In particular, mStar supports developers in creating distributed, real-time multimedia software applications such as e-meetings. mStar enhances both distance education and collaborative teamwork by presenting a uniform user interface for real-time audio and video, shared whiteboard, char, voting, and distributed Web-based presentations. The system also supports on-demand recording and session playback
