eLearning has become an alternative approach to the traditional college and university of education. Experiments have shown that producing of the teaching contents for eLearning is a time-consuming and costly job. This paper introduces a programming-free and easy-to-use multimedia authoring system, T-Cube, designed and has already been used at the University of Trier for eLearning. As a rich-media authoring system, T-cube constructs and presents multimedia contents to students with multi-rate for either offline (CD/DVD/download) or online (in real time or on demand) usage. The rich-media teaching contents, including video, audio and screenshot, are recorded and encoded at the classroom and simultaneously published on Internet. Broadband users can access the lecture in real time as if they were sitting in the classroom. After being compressed and encoded, the teaching contents are also available for narrowband users on demand. Further, the content on CD/DVD are also available on request
