Abstract

This era has witnessed a pedagogical shift in the area of ICT driven education. While the developed countries have it and use it in every aspect of their lives, the developing countries desperately need the ICT tool for its students. Due to the geographical location of the Pacific Island countries, there is a genuine need to design and develop tailor-made Intelligent Classrooms. Hence, another new initiative of USP is to invest in the Intelligent Classroom would be located in all the USP regional campuses with networking of intelligent sensors. This paper presents the prototype of smart classroom which ultimately scaffold to Intelligent Classroom. The intelligent classrooms would be interfaced such that the distance student/staff would be able to interact actively in real time. Adding live-blog for students during lectures to discuss and share ideas with other the students in the same lecture throughout the region. Through live-blog students in small number class in some campus would not feel isolated. Smart timetable is also linked where students will be able to view lecture times via Mobile app, or even the lecturer can book the classroom using app. Moreover human action recognition and voice to text is also interfaced to ease load on lecturer and convert lecture into subtitles preferred to students.
