Abstract: We report about a new way of producing hypermedia documents for supporting teaching at universities. A computer held lecture is automatically converted into the core of a multimedia document and linked together with papers, textbooks, animations and simulations. As an electronic substitute of the blackboard we have used the whiteboard wb of the Mbone toolset and have transmitted the lecture also to remote locations. Our experiments demonstrate that classroom lecturing, distance teaching, and the production of educational hypermedia can be successfully integrated.
