A teaching and learning method and system (143, 145, 147, 148, 152) communicates exercises, including URL's of Web pages and questions related thereto. Each exercise is distributed by the teacher's computer (143), synchronously, or downloaded by a student computer (147), asynchronously. An indicator (129) used on the Web page of one computer can be viewed on the same Web page displayed on the other computers. Responses are processed by the response server (145) and by comparison and evaluation logic, and displayed contemporaneously on the teacher's computer, together with scoring information (105, 106) and with URL's (107) associated with links used on each student computer. Scores are awarded automatically, or arbitrarily by clicking on the screen (105) of the teacher's computer. A feedback signal (80) may appear on the student computer with each keystroke to indicate its correctness. Responses selected on the teacher's computer may viewed on the student computers or on a Class Display (171).
