The use of multimedia in telematics and new services
has been greatly improved by the introduction of new
systems and techniques. These new systems and techniques
made the implementation of many telematic applications
like tele-teaching, collaborative or tele-medicine
applications possible. In this paper, we present design,
protocols and implementation issues, which concern an
Internet based synchronous distant learning application.
We describe in detail the design and the implementation of
each application’s module and we appose the protocols,
which control the communication among the application's
components. The described application is a network-based
application, which follows the client-server model. The
application runs over the Internet and more specifically
over the web. The users of the application access its
services through web pages.
