Distributing virtual worlds in a teleteaching environment

  • This paper discusses the future trends on teleteaching applications. These include remote access to distributed virtual reality resources, information on demand teleservices and multimedia telecommunication environments across high speed multicast networks for teleteaching scenarios. A teleteaching session held by a lecturer in Berlin is multicasted across the regional metropolitan area network. The lecturer has on-line access to some virtual studio and a CM5 supercomputer in Bonn. He can interactively create virtual environments in real-time and the results are multicasted during the lecture. The students may interact with the lecturer via some Multimedia Collaboration Teleservice. They have access to Information on Demand Teleservice (IoD) which provides them with additional background material. The session is broadcasted via satellite link giving more than hundred million people the opportunity to listen and to view lectures.
