and education. The NMES system allows a two way interactive lecture model to be transmitted from the hub site to the five remote sites. The hub site is located at Multimedia University, Cyberjaya, and the remote sites are: (a) Multimedia University, Malacca campus, (b) Penang Skills Development Centre (PSDC), Penang, (c) Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP), Kuantan, (d) Telekom Training College, Sabah, and (e) University Malaysia Sarawak. Students’ at all remote sites can see and hear the lecture being transmitted from the hub and they can provide feedback by asking questions or by using the chat function. This real time interactive project is similar to a face-to- face class where the only difference is that the lecturer is located hundreds of miles away from the students at the remote sites. Besides transmitting lectures for these courses, the system is also used for the transmission of seminars, short courses, as well as meetings by way of the videoconference system with the remote site. Even though Malaysia is a developing country, MMU has established a teleconferencing system using the latest technolo- gies such as satellite communications; high speed networking infrastruc- tures, and plasma screens with powerful audio/video systems (http:// www.mmu.edu.my/~crpp/nmes/index.html).

New Measures of Chinese University Library Knowledge Service under the Cloudization Background

New Measures of Chinese University Library Knowledge Service under the Cloudization Background

Before the network broadcast rises, the university library has used wed-based multimedia to make a lot of beneficial explorations about their lecture forms, and among them, some prominent ways are: introduction of the database ven- dor training platform, the construction and use of MOOC platform and lecture resources sharing through FTP or network disk. Through survey, the author finds that although these methods have their own characteristics, they are not consistent with the objectives of the lecture activities in general, users have low enthusiasm in participation and the functional experience is unsatisfactory. The training platform of database vendors needs to register special accounts and wait for specific time, the lecture content is fixed, and various operations cannot meet the requirements of lecturers well; MOOC are more suitable for the study of professional courses but lack of real-time interactive experience of lectures; re- source sharing can only show part of the lecture, and PPT or lecture notes are only a supplement to the speaker. In general, the existing functions of network broadcast platform are more suitable for the in-depth development of lecture training than other methods.

Distance, multimedia and web delivery in surveying and GIS courses at the University Of Southern Queensland

Distance, multimedia and web delivery in surveying and GIS courses at the University Of Southern Queensland

Technological advances in surveying instrumentation and the trend towards geo- information management have seen the academic institutions reshape, re-market and transform their traditional surveying courses (McDougall et al.,1996). As part of this transformation academic institutions are embracing technology to update their curriculum through the provision of on-line information and the introduction of multimedia delivery (Shortis et al., 2000). The geospatial community has embraced the new technologies and media, particularly the internet (Cartwright et al.,2000) whilst educational institutions are experimenting with the potential of this new technology for the delivery of teaching.

The experience of learning in "The Cube" : Queensland University of Technology's giant interactive multimedia environment

The experience of learning in "The Cube" : Queensland University of Technology's giant interactive multimedia environment

I think we have to stop thinking about The Cube as a way of implementing curriculum design for high school teachers. I mean, it shouldn't be about making an application to teach chemistry, for example. … I’m not saying we should be absolutely doing serious chemistry simulation experiences on The Cube, and they can translate to both the general public and high school students, but it shouldn’t be specifically curriculum related. It should be far more general. We should be trying to solve problems for chemists at QUT, and as a by-product of that there will be things that we can put on The Cube. We should be looking at how can we use this physical space to build applications that are useful for chemists at the university, for doing cutting edge research? (int. 2-PL)

Helping to keep history relevant : mulitmedia and authentic learning

Helping to keep history relevant : mulitmedia and authentic learning

Nonetheless, many aspects of this ‘new’ approach have longer antecedents and have attracted criticism in the past. Integrated, enquiry based curricula and child-centred approaches were much criticised in the 1980s for leading to badly managed classrooms and poor teaching (Poulson 2001) with many of the current debates proving the adage that in education ‘revolutions are circles’. This article analyses the criticisms of and proposed alternatives to the subject based curriculum. It argues that there is no innate reason why subjects, in this case history, cannot be effective in meeting the demands of the twenty first century. Problems lie at the heart of history, and the subject must embrace a problem based methodology, but one within the rigour provided by a sound knowledge base (Haydn 1996). The evidence to support these arguments comes largely from the research, development and evaluation of a series of multimedia CD ROMs produced to support the study of Scottish History. These arguments also help to counter concerns over the impact of ICT on teaching and learning in the classroom (Selwyn 1999). This article argues that multimedia and ICT can help keep history relevant in the twenty first century.

The Horizon of Information Sharing at Makerere University: Multimedia, Audiovisual and the Linked Open Data

The Horizon of Information Sharing at Makerere University: Multimedia, Audiovisual and the Linked Open Data

A lot of research is conducted in the various sections of Makerere University, as one of the core activities from which it attains pride and excellence. Similarly more research output is realized from the different institutions and research centers around the country. Makerere University Library being the National Legal Deposit center houses a collection of information materials from authors and institutions around the country. Data sets from the different research projects may be physically available and relevant but not accessible via the web, to the wider community that may need to use it, before it becomes obsolete. It is also relevant that data sets are made readily accessible to avoid wastage of money in duplication of research. While the information materials are catalogued and metadata made available through the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC), it was likely that the data is not widely accessible through a linked web platform. Therefore, it was relevant to conduct this study to establish the status quo, and to conduct a SWOT analysis of sharing data of multimedia and audio resources in the cloud, using the Linked Open Data.

Interactive multimedia problem-based learning for enhancing pre-service teachers' self-efficacy beliefs about teaching with computers: design, development and evaluation

Interactive multimedia problem-based learning for enhancing pre-service teachers' self-efficacy beliefs about teaching with computers: design, development and evaluation

Several Australian examples of multimedia case-based materials have been described. A CD- ROM case study of an entire primary school was developed for use in a six to eight week unit of study (Walker, Lewis, & Laskey, 1996). The materials included video of the school and its community, interviews with teachers and students and a variety of documents. The intent was to provide students with opportunities to improve their capacity for making judgements in relation to the professional work of teachers. No evaluation of the impact of the materials in use was reported. Anchored instruction and cognitive flexibility informed the design of a CD-ROM which presented the work of an expert teacher for use in a teacher education program (Brown, Knight, & Durrant, 1996). Design and development was described but changes in staffing and course structure and failure to devise teaching strategies in parallel with the development of the materials resulted in no systematic evaluation being reported. Chambers and Stacey (1999a; 1999b) reported the development of multimedia cases for teacher development in computer use and in mathematics teaching, but again no report of the evaluation of the materials has been published as yet. Herrington and Oliver (1999) reported on analysis of patterns in teacher education students’ thinking while working with multimedia materials developed for mathematics education using a situated learning framework. Using observations of student talk, they found that the majority of their thinking was higher-order and that social, procedural and lower-order talk was present in relatively lower proportions. They concluded that multimedia materials based on situated learning could encourage substantial levels of higher-order thinking.

Authoring Multimedia Documents using WYSIWYM Editing

Authoring Multimedia Documents using WYSIWYM Editing

words in a text should be aected by the inclusion of a picture: First, and most obvi- ously, texts may be enlarged by references to pictures (e.g., references like `See Fig. 3' may be added, cf. Paraboni and Van Deemter 1999). Secondly, texts may be reduced because information expressed in the picture can be shortened (or left out altogether). One type of situation where this happens is exemplied by the text `Re- move the capsule from the foil as shown in the picture' ( abpi 1997), accompanied by a picture showing how this may be done. Other types of situation include the case where quantitative information is ex- pressed through a vague textual description (`a blob of cream', `a ngertip of ointment') that is made more precise by means of a picture showing the required amount. It should be noted that each of these extensions depends crucially on illustrate 's ability to manipulate the semantic representations asso- ciated with multimedia objects, where one and the same representation language is used for the dierent media: a multimedia `interlingua' (e.g. Barker-Plummer and Greeves 1995). In the case of an author selecting a picture using thumbnails, for example, the semantic representation enables the author to (a) nd a suitable location for the picture and (b) adapt the text by omitting from it information that is now expressed by the picture.

We have proposed a cloud-based wireless multimedia social network in which desktop users receive multimedia services from a multimedia cloud, and they can also share their live contents with mobile friends through wireless connections. This network architecture offers advantages of cost savings for network services and satisfying the increasing demand on bandwidth requirements. In this multimedia social network, we focus on a bandwidth allocation problem with the objective of sharing bandwidth efficiently between desktop users and mobile users. This problem has been solved by a gametheoretical approach. Illustrative results show the efficiency of the proposed scheme. An interesting future topic is related to distributed elaboration [9]. In cloud-based wireless multimedia social networks, the distributed collaboration and distributed resource allocation mechanisms can be studied jointly to achieve efficient multimedia sharing and transmission. Resource discovery mechanisms can also be incorporated in the framework of resource management [10].
