There are huge numbers of Web pages in the Internet. However, many learners tend to miss useful pages, miss valuable information in a page, or misunderstand the contents because there are huge amount of irrelevant information exist mingled with the useful information. To deal with this problem, we propose a "Web Recorder" system that provides functions for recording and replaying Web browsing operations and annotating pages. Instructors can create a Web browsing "scenario" to show learners Web information that is relevant to the learning objectives. We conducted experiments in real learning and teaching activities. The results indicate that the system made it easier for learners to become aware of and to understand important information dispersed in the pages. Improvements in teaching and learning effectiveness were observed in the course of these experiments.
