A System For Placing Videotaped And Digital Lectures On-Line


The idea of distance education, or learning at home has become very popular in recent years. Most major Universities offer classes on-line, and several smaller institutes exclusively offer distance classes. The distance courses can be offered either by mail (videotapes and books) or over the Internet (web pages). The web-based courses are limited by of bandwidth restrictions. This makes complex, interactive, presentation of information virtually impossible. Videotapes are able to present complex information, however the production and distribution cost of videotapes makes the idea very prohibitive. This paper will present a system for compressing video lectures for Internet transmission, without losing classroom information. In addition, we present algorithms that improve the interactivity of the presentation by use of Optical Character Recognition and Speech Recognition technologies.
