Project Idea | (Remote Lab Assistance)



The idea is to provide a framework for students and instructor. The framework provides an instructor-friendly remote monitoring of lab, effective evaluation, and grading methodology. The system also provides a student-friendly remote login, software access, and problem resolution through effective help from the teacher. The framework can be easily implemented as a client-server in Java.
Features:
Instructor Panel: 
    a) Sees icons for all students. Can click on an icon to see what student is doing. 
    b) Can chat with students
    c) Can identify copying/opening windows other than IDE. An icon blinks if there is a sudden change in picture.
Student Panel: 
    a) Can send a help request to instructor.

Implementation:
We can capture screenshots of all students and send them at fixed intervals (say 2 seconds) to the instructor.
Tools:
Java provides rich libraries for networking and Image processing. Java and Netbeans can be downloaded from below link:
