A Media Delivery Framework for on Demand Learning in Manufacturing Processes
This paper presents a streaming-based E-Learning environment where closer integration between learning and work is achieved by integrating multimedia services into manufacturing processes. It contains a comprehensive and detailed explanation of the proposed E-Learning streaming framework, especially the adaption of streaming services to mobile environments. The authors first analyze several scenarios where ELearning streaming services can be integrated into manufacturing processes. To allow systematic and tailor-made integration, they develop a model and a specification language for E-Learning streaming services and apply the model using practical scenarios from real manufacturing processes. Adaption of multimedia streaming services to mobile devices is discussed based on Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL).
