In this paper we present the design and the implementation of an interactive environment for cooperative teleworking. Telemathea offers tools that support the communication and the teleworking between tutor and trainee, who may reside in remote geographical regions. This environment offers audio communication over the network as well as support for joint editing of text documents and still images. It supports different audio coding techniques so as to adjust to the available bandwidth, and makes use of the RTP protocol in order to facilitate the exchange of audio and, in the future, video packets.
