Project Idea | (Remote Lab Assistance)

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 07 Nov, 2015

The idea is to provide a framework for students and instructor. The framework provides an instructor-friendly remote monitoring of lab, effective evaluation, and grading methodology. The system also provides a student-friendly remote login, software access, and problem resolution through effective help from the teacher. The framework can be easily implemented as a client–server in Java.

Instructor Panel:
    a) Sees icons for all students. Can click on an icon to see what student is doing.
    b) Can chat with students
    c) Can identify copying/opening windows other than IDE. An icon blinks if there is a sudden change in picture.

Student Panel:
    a) Can send a help request to instructor.
    b) Can chat with instructor

We can capture screenshots of all students and send them at fixed intervals (say 2 seconds) to the instructor.
