Due to their heavy workload and tight schedules, it is difficult for many part-time students at City University of Hong Kong to 'digest' the course materials and understand their content. It would therefore be convenient for them if the lectures and tutorials are recorded and posted on the Internet so that they can watch them easily on the Web.

In this paper, the authors outline a project which aims to provide a solution to the above problem by synchronizing video, audio and image files which are used in the lectures or tutorials to achieve a podcasting technology in the Web. In addition, the project also aims to record Web podcasting by XML technology and retrieve it later.
