This paper describes (1) an internet collaboration system `UNIVERSAL CANVAS' which supports an efficient awareness by `interactive image control' even on narrow land networks and (2) the experiments and evaluation in group work distance learning to exchange language and cross-cultural communication between Japanese and French students by using UNIVERSAL CANVAS, and explains how the unique features of this system could facilitate the effective use of shared Web pages in a multiparty environment from the view points of location, numbers of people, method of the lecture, whether with or without interactive image control function.
