Abstract

The automated recording system EyA is an innovative, open-source system developed to archive lectures of physics and mathematics carried out using either digital presentations or more traditional chalkboards. We report updates on the software, its portability to embedded systems like low-cost Raspberry Pi, and on its new (html5 with javascript and .mp4 video) interface for mobile devices. We discuss the implementation of this affordable technology in high schools (www.opendante.com), in pre-PhD diploma courses (www.ictp.tv) and at some universities in developing countries (www.dxd.tv).

Abstract in Italian

Il sistema automatico di registrazione EyA è un metodo innovativo ed open-source (libero), sviluppato per custodire lezioni di fisica e matematica tenute usando sia presentazioni digitali sia la più tradizionale lavagna col gesso. Qui descriviamo gli aggiornamenti del software, e la sua portabilità a sistemi come quello a basso costo denominato Raspberry Pi. Inoltre descriviamo la nuova interfaccia (html5 con javascript e video in formato mp4) del software per dispositivi mobili. Discutiamo, infine, la messa in opera di questa tecnologia a basso costo sia nelle scuole superiori (www.opendante.com) che nei corsi pre-dottorato (www.ictp.tv) ed in alcune unversità in paesi in via di sviluppo (www.dxd.tv).
