This paper presents a framework for web-based lecture delivery platform. This platform allows user to view a video lecture that is synchronized with the slides. The user can navigate through the video via two drop-down lists of entries in Table of Contents and the slide titles on the web page. User can also search for a keyword in the texts in the slides in order to go straight to the relevant slide(s) synchronized with the video. To produce this type of video delivery, software modules to support authoring and publication were developed. The authoring module will assist in the creation, indexing, synchronization, and the organization of multimedia objects of the lecture. These objects include digital video or audio of the lecture, images of slides, titles of the slide, and table of contents. The publication module will adapt the delivery over the web to suit user preference, network bandwidth, and terminal capability. The prototype had received positive responses from educators.
