Farsi, Mohammed; Munro, Malcolm
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v4 n5 p139-148 May 2016
Background: The Islamic Prayer is central to the Islam religion and is a requirement for all Muslims to learn and perform properly. Teaching the Islamic Prayer had traditionally been through the use of textbooks. Aims: This paper describes the design and implementation of the iIP (interactive Islamic Prayer) system to teach the Islamic prayer using Virtual Environments and interactive technologies. Method: The approach taken was to first define the various elements that make up the Islamic Prayer (positions, verbal statements and units). This is then captured in software that uses the Microsoft Windows Kinect system. Results: The Islamic Prayer sequences were successfully captured and implemented in the iIP system. Conclusions: The iIP system design and implementation using Microsoft Windows Kinect system was described. This was based on the definition of the different elements of the Islamic Prayer.
