Abstract

This paper discusses video contents in WebELS e-learning platform for post-graduate education and proposes ideas for automatic video support. WebELS provides a web-based, multi-platform tool, by which traditional instructors can archive their learning materials on the web and students can do their personal learning over the Internet. Uploaded contents can be used either in standalone or group learning in real-time with discussion. WebELS supports contents with text, images, audio and video. However, VIDEO, because of its nature and high volume of involved data causes series of problems regarding its capturing, uploading, transmission, downloading, viewing, code conversion, compression and so on. The vision of this paper is to discuss the WebELS editor and propose ideas to support PowerPoint presentation material with video created by standard PowerPoint presentation editor, for example Microsoft PowerPoint with an explanation of video pre-processing and video handling.
