Projektin yleispiirteitä:

IBM on kehittänyt mallin elektroniselle kirjastolle. Käyttäjät voivat hakea nopeilla tietoliikenneyhteyksillä multimedia materiaalia esitettäväksi tietokoneensa näytölle tai vaikkapa heijastaa sitä valkokankaalle. Tätä Video-on-Demand (VoD) järjestelmää sovelletaan ensi vaiheessa koululaisten opetukseen. Ensimmäisessä kokeilussa nebraskalainen Lincoln High School on yhteydessä optisella kaapelilla Nebraskan yliopiston tiloissa olevaan IBM:n videopalvelimeen.

Projektin yleispiirteitä:

Virginia Tech's Distance Learning Project extends live, interactive instruction from the campus and other areas to cooperating industries and institutions. Courses are broadcast using specially designed electronic classroom studios. Faculty have an overhead camera for displaying instructor prepared graphics, models and other realia. Faculty can interface their own computer to the video system or use our 486 MS-DOS computer. A videowriter is available and allows the electronic highlighting of any video signal such as slides, graphics and videotape. Professional quality graphics and titles are prepared by the VBS staff using a full complement of electronic imaging and graphic devices. A variety of field production services and video tape editing is also offered. Recording and playback are available in most analog formats including BetaCam and Type C 1-inch. Award winning services provided include design, development, coordination, and production of television programming for dissemination through tape, videodisk, multimedia, and direct satellite broadcast.

http://minas.stanford.edu/project/project.html

Projektin yleispiirteitä:

The purpose of the On-Line Distance-Learning System project is to make use of emerging digital video technologies and multimedia networking to deliver live and stored video lectures and seminars to students at their desktop computers over local area and wide area networks. For the sake of realism and concreteness, the design of this system is made in the context of the Stanford Instructional Television Network (SITN) serving both the Stanford community at large and off-campus students at SITN's remote customer sites. The system is designed to provide the following functions:

- real-time capture (digitization and compression) of SITN lectures and recording of the compressed video onto a central on-demand server.

- transmission of compressed video over the campus network to on-campus library servers and privately-owned servers where subsets of the captured lectures

- can be (i) viewed live by means of stations connected to these servers, and (ii) stored for later on-demand access.

- transmission of compressed video over wide area networks (such as switched-56Kb/s and switched-T1 services, public data networks, the Internet, or

- experimental ATM networks such as Bagnet, Calren, and the Sprint Trial) to servers at SITN remote customer sites where subsets of the captured lectures

- can be (i) viewed live by means of stations connected to these servers, and (ii) stored for later on-demand access.

- real-time transmission of compressed video over local and wide area networks to individual desktop computers connected to these networks for (i) live

- viewing of captured lectures, and (ii) access to on-demand servers.

(some papers; ftp://succeed.ee.vt.edu/)

Projektin yleispiirteitä:

At the Telecommunications Research Laboratory (TRL), University of Florida, Gainesville for the SUCCEED project, Videoconferencing for Distance Learning, have the capability for videoconferencing over circuit switched networks (using p*56 Kbps and ISDN lines) and packet switched videoconferencing over the Internet. The packet switched videoconferencing capability comes from our link to the worldwide Multicast Bone (MBone) Network. They have already conducted switched videoconferencing experiments, in which audio and video signals were sent over the two remote sites within University of Florida using the 2B channels of ISDN. The 128 Kbps bandwidth allocated to 2B channels was partitioned into 96 Kbps for video and 32 Kbps for audio.

(The live video image may be transported either over the Internet or voice telephone circuits with the audio being transported only by phone at this time.) This year's (1995) Global Schoolhouse partner schools are from California, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia. Global Schoolhouse affiliate schools (schools that have adopted the Global Schoolhouse model) include schools in Washington and Australia

Projektin yleispiirteitä:

The 100-school Networking Project is a trial which connects participating elementary and junior high schools with computer networks in order to explore new possibilities in learning methods.

This project was initiated under the combined auspices of Ministry of International Trade and Industry and Ministry of Education. Project operations are managed by

Information-technology Promotion Agency and Center for Educational Computing.

This project encompasses four on-going sub-projects:

- "National Germination Map"--a group-learning project for elementary school students observing the growth of pumpkin seeds planted at various locations throughout Japan on 2 May 1995.

- "Acid Rain Survey"--on the realities of local and national environmental problems by utilizing data provided by participating schools.

- Mailing Lists for Project teachers and project management staff to exchange information as a touchstone toward future information exchange programs.

- Trial news groups for elementary, junior high and high school students to exchange information.
