Abstract: Multi-media classroom technology provides a unique opportunity to augment the classroom experience. Coordinating instructional streams with student feedback and assessment will enable instructors to know when and if their intended message was communicated to their students. A system where both instructional and presentational aspects of a lecture can be evaluated promptly will permit instructors and students to react quickly when there is a gap between intent and understanding, improving instruction. Presented here is a multi-media, e-classroom framework where information can be gathered to measure student, faculty and organizational achievement and to assist in improvement. Specifically, this paper focuses on using this e-classroom framework to improve instruction.
