Electronic Chalk: A tool for live and remote teaching (06 Dec 2002)
The philosophy of E-Chalk is to provide "smart" tools for enhancing the classroom experience. The lecturer can paste images on the board directly from bookmarks. He or she can also call an algebraic server to solve equations or plot functions (Mathematica from Wolfram Research). It is also possible to access web sites directly, send a textual query, and get a textual answer. It is possible, for example, to ask for a translation, a calender, or any information provided by Web sites and integrate this into the board contents on the fly . E-Chalk is intended to be controlled using handwriting recognition. A first prototype of mathematical handwriting recognition has been written.
