The task of the customer was to develop a solution for remote schooling. A realistic analogue of being present at a lesson was implemented: a student fully participates in a discussion, completes tasks in a group, comments, asks questions, and submits homework for checking. This solution is is actively used in Belgian schools.
Application area: Education
Customer: McNolia BV, Utrecht, Netherlands for Bednet, Belgium.
Project’s aim: This project is focused on helping children that are not able to attend school classes for valid reasons. With the help of equipment that the child has at home and in the classroom, the student can virtually “attend” the lesson, i.e. see and hear teachers and other students, ask and answer questions, “raise a hand” by pressing a button, receive and send written tasks (using a printer and scanner).
This solution is based on the Vidyo conferencing system (http://vidyo.com) but with significant modifications according to the customer’s requirements.
