This paper describes a multimedia teaching-based project to help students understand and review lecture notes efficiently and quickly using the World-Wide-Web (WWW). The speed-variable and audio-driven capability of the Javascript-based project can allow students to review any page of the lecture notes at any time and at variable audio-playback speed (ranging from 0.5 to 2 times continuously) at the normal speaking pitch. In particular, the high compression capability (compression ratio up to 53:1) of the developed program can greatly increase the loading speed of the lecture notes from the Web server.
