Although the Internet offers a novel promising ground to seekers of education, it has been lacking in its generosity to foster Multi-Media. Loading time issues plus the strict content of HTML pages seemed as a prime hindrance to all those who wished to mix the two media online yet retain the flexibility of an adaptable system. As a consequence adaptable intelligent tutoring system were mostly confined to presenting textual material and simple graphs. Here, we present a model that was designed and implemented through Java Servlets that dynamically create the HTML page according to student requirements. The screen is a composite of files put together for a particular student with both an animated part and a textual one in addition to an interaction window. A student is guided through a maze of different approaches to explain the same material according to a student model. The result was a Multi-Media adaptable Intelligent Tutoring System on the Internet.
