Institutions all over the world are continuously exploring ways to use ICT in improving teaching and learning effectiveness. In higher education, the teaching methodologies are changing from the classroom-based methodology to the so-called Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). To meet the social demands for internationalized higher education, we propose a new automated authoring system for recording and capturing an on-line presentation in the WebELS system. The proposed system enable generating eLearning contents automatically based on a real-time presentation by synchronizing the presenter video and slide-documents materials, which is very valuable for students who did not grasp specific topics, to repeat important parts of the presentation. Furthermore, for those who were not able to attend the live presentation, they can access to the learning contents created at the server side for later reviewing. The automated system is proposed to work on the cloud-computing environment to ensure reliability and scalability of the system. The design concerns non-IT users, and low-speed Internet users, such as in the developing countries.
