A dramatic increase in the development of technology-based teaching and learning has been witnessed in the past decade. Many universities and corporations started rethinking the design and implementation of the learning systems. Due to the network infrastructure limitations in the traditional systems, it is difficult to provide an efficient and effective approach for delivering personalized course materials to individual student anytime anywhere. To take advantage from the emergence of the Internet, it provides an inexpensive and flexible infrastructure that can greatly enhance die communication among eLearning system and students. In this paper, we introduce a SMIL-based approach to manage text, graphics, audio, and video for presenting the personalized media-based lesson on the Web. The facilities and capabilities of Web-based architecture, user profiles, XML, and SMIL are incorporated and utilized in a prototype system in our discussion.
