Learners and tutors in cooperative learning environments need a shared tool for preparing material, taking notes and exchanging thoughts synchronously. To this aim, we developed a Java tool, the Shared Multimedia Notebook, which supports shared user operations on static and time-based media objects. Cooperative tasks are supported by enabling collaborative interaction among users and offering perception of a shared context. Results are stored by object persistency and by exportation to various formats. This provides an integrated way for content creation, manipulation and management inside a cooperative setting.
