DISTANCE EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS: REALITIES AND PERSPECTIVES
This chapter discusses the role of ICT as a catalyst of a new global educational reform in schools aimed to break the monopoly of the print and paper based educational system. Some basic definitions are given although it is emphasized that the area is very dynamic and the definitions are still evolving. The main conclusion related to the ongoing educational reform is that it is based on designing and using different virtual learning environments which do not put clear boundary between physical a

Caller: Computer Assisted Language Learning from Erlangen - Pronunciation Training and More
In school, oral examination and the ability to speak a foreign language properly have become more important. Yet, individual time per pupil to train the correct pronunciation is extremely short. Caller is a program to support learning English including pronunciation training in class and at home. Its client/server architecture allows to run complex analysis programs like speech recognition on the server without having to consider computational restrictions of PCs. At the same time, the teacher h

Mashing The MUVE - A Mashup Model for Collaborative Learning in Multi-User Virtual Environments
Mashup technologies offer opportunities for students to become proactive, collaborative and engaged. However the primary metaphors are asynchronous, allowing reflexive and expansive dialogue (Palloff & Pratt 1999) but limit dynamic collaborative learning. This paper will present a model being evaluated at the Open University using a mashup immersive learning environment to offer collaborative learning in a situated, constructivist context. The pilot project will be used to map pedagogy and learn

A User-Friendly Sign Language Chat
The introduced concept of a gesture based sign language chat enables the communication of hearing impaired people over networks, including concerns regarding low throughput and bandwidth characteristics. Existing applications handle that task not appropriate, since either high bandwidth networks are necessary or the extensibility of the vocabulary is complicated for untrained users. Thereby our approach facilitates existing image recognition techniques for the determination of gestures which are

Efficient object based streaming framework for web-based education
An efficient moving object extraction algorithm suitable for real-time content-based multimedia streaming systems is proposed in this paper. A Motion Vector (MV) based object extraction is used to dynamically detect the objects. To utilize the bandwidth efficiently, the important object can be real time detected, encoded, and transmitted with higher quality and higher frame rate than those of background. In order to meet the real-time requirement, no computationally intensive operation is includ

Modeling and simulation in inquiry learning: Checking solutions and giving intelligent advice
Inquiry learning is a didactic approach in which students acquire knowledge and skills through processes of theory building and experimentation. Computer modeling and simulation can play a prominent role within this approach. Students construct representations of physical systems using modeling. Using simulation, they execute these representations to study the phenomena or systems modeled. However, the modeling task is complex, and students can fail to create adequate models, which prevents effe
