Headset module with microphone and webcam for e-learning
I was assigned as one of the lecturers of Obirin University near our office, and visited there for recording of e-learning contents for teacher’s license qualification course. Such courses are usually carried out face-to-face, and limitation of the opportunities compared to the number of trainees is of significant problem for school teachers. The courses of Obirin University are unique in that trainees (school teachers, in this case) can polish up their skill anytime and anyplace as long as internet connection is available. Personal authentication is a key technology to e-learning, and Obirin University developed a specially-designed headset module with microphone and webcam, to be leased to the trainees. I heard that they used significant time and expenditure to realize this system. Bad news to them is that Democratic Party of Japan was recently elected to office and started to discard this course itself. Will my program be broadcasted as planned?
職場の近くにある桜美林大学が開催する教員免許更新講習を受け持つことになり、その初回分の収録に行ってきました。なぜ収録かというと、桜美林の教員免許更新講習はe-ラーニングで行われ、インターネット環境さえあれば、全国どこにいても、自分の好きな時間に講習を受けることができるシステムになっているからです。教員免許更新講習は、会場で行われるのが通例ですが、対象者の数に比べて開講される講習の数が少ないのが現状で、学校教員にとって大きな負担となっています。そこで桜美林大学が始めたのが、e-ラーニング用に開発した、本人認証可能なカメラ・ヘッドセット・マイクからなる一体型システムを受講者に貸与するといこと。このための準備は一苦労だったようです。ところでこの制度、民主党の主導で進められている「事業仕分け」の渦中にあり、その存続そのものが危ぶまれています。寸暇を惜しんで作ったこの講習教材、日の目を見ることなく終わるのか否か。
