In an effort to develop effective multi-media learning objects (MLO), we propose a framework to extract and associate semantic tags to temporally segmented instructional videos. These tags serve for the purpose of efficient indexing and retrieval system. We create these semantic tags from potential keywords extracted from the lecture transcript. The(More)
This paper proposes a new objective metric called the SEMCON to enrich existing concepts in domain ontologies for describing and organizing multimedia documents. The SEMCON model exploits the document contextually and semantically. The preprocessing module collects a document and partitions that into several passages. Then a morpho-syntatic analysis is(More)
The usage of non-scripted lecture videos as a part of learning material is becoming an everyday activity in most of higher education institutions due to the growing interest in flexible and blended education. Generally these videos are delivered as part of Learning Objects (LO) through various Learning Management Systems (LMS). Currently creating these(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel approach to understand the high level semantics of instructional video by identifying mid-level features from the lecture content. The lecture content in instructional videos can be divided into text, equations and figures. In unscripted lecture video, these visual contents can be useful visual cues to understand the high(More)
In this paper we study image distortions and impairments that affect the perceived quality of blackboard lectures images. We also propose a novel reference free image quality evaluation metric that correlates well with the perceived image quality. The perceived quality of images of blackboard lecture contents is mostly affected by the presence of noise,(More)
