Abstract

Following the rapidly growing technology, TV started to switch-off from the analogue world to the modern digital technologies of broadcasting. Digital technology has the potential to offer the audience a variety of services apart from the common audiovisual stream. Many of the new services are inherited from the Personal Computers (PC) world, including on-demand features, games, transactions, and other interactive options. Television has had a long history of performing an educational function for the mass audience, typically by broadcasting culturally-relevant movies, documentaries and news, as well as educational programmes. The idea of Distance Learning through a TV blossomed extensively in particular as a complementary educational option besides PC-based e-learning and traditional analogue TV educational programs. In particular, TV-based interactive education promises a huge potential due to its ability to support interactivity while compensating for the low penetration of Internet-enabled computers in comparison with the penetration of a TV in a household.
