The GestureCam is a remote-controlled actuator onto which a small camera and laser pointer are mounted. The term "GestureCam System" includes other user interfaces which control the GestureCam, such as the master actuator and the touch-sensitive CRT. We expect the system to act as the surrogate of a remote person. In order to clarify advantages and problems(More)
We developed a multimedia satellite network system based on the Internet protocol (IP) and personal computers. It enables collaborative distance education between outdoor and indoor environments. Integration of IP technologies and satellite communications enhances the flexibility of the network system. The satellite communication system enables us to(More)

Despite convenient functions supporting videoconferencing, it is often difficult to maintain awareness and attention during remote lectures. One possible approach for addressing such difficulties is to present using a flip board held by a presenter, instead of presentation slides usually displayed on a different screen away from the presenter’s(More)
We considered a support system for medical image-based diagnosis over satellite communication which can be used by doctors in a remote disaster area who have little experience of the system. Quick image-based diagnosis is difficult to perform using satellite since satellite communication lines are characterized by long delays and low transmission speeds.(More)
We have developed a prototype system that supports language translation for distance lecturing and local learning. The system automatically detects a word displayed in a video image by matching the identified character markers; it then translates the word into the other language and displays the translated word using text, image, and/or sound. The ARToolkit(More)
We developed a prototype system for supporting presentation with a mobile PC in distance education, which have been designed to keep eye contact between students and a lecturer and to facilitate finger pointing by a lecturer in videoconference. Despite convenient functions supporting videoconferencing, it is often difficult to keep the awareness and(More)

Collaboration is useful in the field of education. Things difficult individually can be achieved by collaboration and the collaborative learning is effective for fostering critical thinking and problem solving potentials. But, the requirements for a collaboration system are different from those for virtual universities. And there are not many articles about(More)
