Topic: PDF annotation development options?

We would like instructors and students of a distance education program to be able to annotate/discuss arbitrary PDF files. They must be able to do this over the Web, ideally without special (costly) software. (A reader is assumed.)
We can associate our own annotations with a PDF doc and page, however, we want to be able to annotate at finer granularity so we can, for example, highlight, or at least extract text associated with an annotation and refer back to the location within the document.
I don't know where to begin. Is there a Reader plug-in API? Do we need to create our own plug-in? Do we need the Acrobat SDK? Is there [server-side] commercial software to do this? Any suggestions will be very much appreciated, thank you!
