—We present a new interactive multimedia system
for blended learning called PowerChalk. The goal of
PowerChalk is to provide a robust, reliable, usable and
sustainable multimedia technology to any intelligent
environment focused on blended learning. The software
architecture allows adapting the system to any hardware
configuration and supports collaboration, communication,
creativity and learning. In this sense, PowerChalk resolves
many limitations of current e-learning systems, improves
human-computer interaction for the management of different
kinds of hardware and data and allows to implement different
configurations for intelligent environments.
