Abstract

There are many web-based collaborative whiteboard systems over the Internet, but they still have some problems as follows. First, they usually do not provide the function to support teacher-student interaction in the classroom. Second, they do not clearly define a user's role as a teacher or a student, and do not provide an interface for students to interact with lessons and teachers. Moreover, some of those whiteboards are implemented by using Adobe Flash, which need to be installed as a browser plug-in. In this paper, we propose a web-based whiteboard system for the classroom environment, which can support the interaction between teachers and students. The system provides several tools and functions for teachers to create better learning environment. Besides, the client sides for teachers and students are entirely implemented by HTML and JavaScript. Therefore, users do not need to install any browser plug-ins to use this system. Moreover, an orbited server and some PHP scripts are used on server side, so that the system can provide real-time broadcast and interaction functions.
