Cloud-Based Mobile Distance Learning System

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 214)


We present a cloud-based mobile e-learning system that supports both synchronous and asynchronous learning. It allows students to watch live lecture video with annotated slides as well as to interact with the lecturer using text in real time. The cloud server records the lecture session and sends them to the clients that ask for the recorded session so that students can watch the lecture session they missed, in their convenient time. We plan to conduct empirical study after having a sample group to use our prototype.
