An Authoring Tool for As-in-Class E-lectures in E-learning Systems

Nael Hirzallah


This study lists and discusses the basic features that any E-Learning system should consider. It also proposes an authoring algorithm, namely Slide Generating Algorithm that uses the Authoring-on-the-Fly approach to create electronic course content from real lectures. A tool using the proposed algorithm was implemented packaging the outcome in a SMIL format including audio, video, and slides considering lecturer notes, animations and significant slide transitions. This tool allows instructors to easily create their E-Lectures during a normal lecture time. Furthermore, the outcome of the tool could be uploaded by any platform and viewed by any system.
