Novel features

While interacting with the participants, Shri Gopal, said a dozen of novel features will be integrated in the next version of A-VIEW. “Our R&D wing is industriously developing a bunch of ultra-modern features such as Face Recognition, Attention Analysis, Handwriting recognition and Application sharing,” he said.

He emphasized that A-VIEW is an ideal e-learning tool for India’s educational system. “Through A-VIEW, classes can be transmitted to various states in local flavour with limited infrastructure,” said Shri Gopal.

Face Recognition

It is a computer application for identifying a person. And, it will be used for logging into A-VIEW.

Attention Analysis

It automatically identifies the attentive stages of a person while attending a virtual class.

A-VIEW Quiz
