VideoBook赢得教育技术门类的创新大奖

HP Labs India won in this category for its VideoBook educational system, which collects videos from YouTube and other online sources to enrich digital texts.

With VideoBook, the Bangalore-based unit of Hewlett-Packard Co. is taking aim at a cluster of problems with online education: While textbooks remain at the center of classroom instruction, creating compelling electronic versions, complete with custom video, can be time-consuming and expensive.

At the same time, educators are reluctant to turn their pupils loose to find their own content online, fearing that students either won't find the most relevant sources or will get distracted by the Web's vast quantities of unsuitable material.

The technology uses software to identify the key topics in digital text and then search the Web for appropriate videos -- say, an online lecture, an experiment or a graphic demonstrating a math concept.

After ranking each video for relevance to the subject, it displays the text and the most relevant videos side by side.

HP plans to offer the technology as either a Web-based service for students or a software download for employee training. It has been tested by students in Bangalore and Ahmedabad and has begun to be introduced in India this fall.
