{{#titlehere:}} Please note that the present pages on the ICTP workshop were obtained from a mediawiki used during the workshop. There may be a number of links that go to missing pages, and other inconsistencies. Much of it is also very informal, and should be seen as workshop notes!From User:Mathe/BlogEntry: 2007 December 11 13:01:19 UTC

We are having a presentation of vELAP: video based E-Lectures for All Participants.

vELAP supports:

  • Powerpoint
  • video
  • audio
  • screen capture
  • video subtitles for the deaf(this is not textual, it is done in a similar fashion that tv does in presenting the news i.e. it is based on sign signalling)


The system is a mobile system mounted on a trolley with many components that include: computer, Lcd monitor, and wireless router. The system requires one person to do the recording and this means that use of the system doesn't have too high cost implications. The project has been developed in partnership with:Slovenian Research Agency, University of Maribor plus other three partners. The development of the system has been developed over the .net framework.

This is the website to visit: eqweb.uni-mb.si (from trying it out myself it looks like without registering for use one can't find any information)
