Recently, several reports have been made about distance education using the Internets. In the field of synchronous learning, though there maybe an advantage for capability of interactive instruction, the initial cost and running cost, being high, are the main problem. On the other hand in the asynchronous learning though there maybe an advantage of spatial and temporal flexibility for the learners, costs for producing the contents and the lack of interactivity are the main disadvantages. The authors have developed web-based distance education tool called Web.Com for both the synchronous and the asynchronous function, which is intended to be utilized for interactive graphical communication upon the window of existing web page. It can be used for the asynchronous learning by accumulating the historical logs of user events (e.g. annotation, scroll, drawing action of users) and replay of them.
