Rationale, Design and Implementation of a Computer Vision-Based Interactive E-Learning System
Xu, Richard Y. D.; Jin, Jesse S.
International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, v5 n4 p26-45 Oct-Dec 2007
This article presents a schematic application of computer vision technologies to e-learning that is synchronous, peer-to-peer-based, and supports an instructor's interaction with non-computer teaching equipments. The article first discusses the importance of these focused e-learning areas, where the properties include accurate bidirectional interaction and low cost hardware; system portability and versatile vision technology are emphasized. In the subsequent sections, we present some results aiming to achieve these goals. In particular, we highlight the most recent advancements in the interactive PTZ [pan, tilt, zoom] camera control from both the instructor and remote student. We also illustrated how these results have successfully addressed the challenges.
