Lecture-on-demand (LOD) multimedia presentation technologies in networks are most often used in communication services. Examples of those applications include video-on demand, interactive TV and communication tools in a distance learning system, etc. In this paper, we describe how to present different multimedia objects on a Web-based presentation system. The distributed approach is based on an extended timed Petri net model. Using characterization of extended media streaming technologies, we developed a Web-based multimedia presentation system. For a real-world example, suppose a well-known teacher is giving a lecture/presentation to his students. Because of time constraints and other commitments, many students cannot attend the presentation. The main goal of our system is to provide a feasible method to record and represent a lecture/presentation. Using a browser with windows media services allows those students to view live video of the teacher giving his speech, along with synchronized images of his presentation slides and all the annotations/comments. In our experience, this approach is sufficient for distance learning environments.
