Abstract:

In the field of eLearning systems, several systems have been implemented in order to create a virtual university or virtual training center. By connecting several virtual universities together, we extend the concept of an online university setting to a virtual world where there is richer interaction between the players. In this virtual world, several universities can interact, the best instructors deliver the lectures, and after the class, the interaction and learning continue in a social online chat room where members from all the universities can participate. We propose a generic eLearning framework called A-VIEW (Amrita Virtual Interactive eLearning World) for educational, corporate, and other applications. The A-VIEW project is a joint venture of Amrita University, ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), TIFAC India, and the Indo-US eLearning Initiative.
