Distributed Education Using the mStar Environment.
Synnes, Kare; Lachapelle, Serge; Parnes, Peter; Schefstrom, Dick
The mStar environment for distributed education utilizes the World Wide Web and IP-multicast to enable teacher-student collaboration over large geographic distances. Several educational projects, spanning secondary school courses to company internal training have deployed the mStar environment. This paper reports on experiences gained over a year of practice at the Lulea University of Technology (Lulea, Sweden) and the Center for Distance-Spanning Technology. The paper presents the methodology and technology used, while recognizing usage scenarios such as preparation of presentation material, distributed presentations, asynchronous playback of recorded and edited material, and virtual meetings for educational support. Contains 11 references. (Author)
