A Voice-enabled Interactive Services (VòIS) Architecture for e-Learning

Authors:
Luvai F. Motiwalla

Keywords: Distance education, e-learning architecture, speech recognition, interactive voice response, access for the disabled.

Abstract:
Mobile devices have gained global popularity for business and government uses. Yet, these devices are not commonly used in e-learning environments. One reason is the difficulty of interacting with e-learning tools like forums or chats from mobile devices which usually have small screens and limited keyboards. The goal of this paper is to discuss a voice enablement approach that can provide a solution to this problem. This approach can enhance mobile learning with an architecture that can make communication and collaboration easy from mobile devices. The paper discusses a pilot study with voice-enabled mobile learning project which was evaluated with blind students from higher education institutions in USA. The lessons learned from this project enable us to propose a voice-enabled interactive services (VòIS) architecture which can increase use of voice recognition technology in mobile learning. Results from this exploratory study, though small, specific, and culturally biased, will hopefully lead to proper investments in mobile learning applications and more research on understanding the role of mobile devices in education.
