Brief description Life long learning has become an integral part of many people's career development. Interactive video on-demand (VoD) can be used to deliver video learning materials to students when they choose to study. The aim of this project is to investigate the research issues on designing scalable interactive VoD for e-learning. Comparing with previous work in the area, this project takes a holistic approach, which includes multicast, distributed smart caches and video coding as its building blocks. Huazhong University, who is active in e-learning research, provides an ideal location to trial interactive VoD techniques, due to their large student population.
