Creating A More Personalized Online Classroom
Video indexing and computer vision from Xerox are customizing lessons to different learning styles
While online lessons and courses are able to distribute information to a wide range of individuals, they often fail to tailor lessons to particular students’ learning patterns. Unable to fully utilize the information, students are likely to fail to complete online lessons, resulting in a six percent completion rate for most massive online open courses (MOOCS). In response, technology company Xerox has created online classroom software that helps students navigate through databases of online courses for a personalized learning experience. The technology, invented by researchers at Xerox Research Centre India (XRCI), uses computer vision and multimedia analytics to allow students to search for the exact topic within a video lesson they want to view.
