How System WorksTeacher computer or system is the Core part of the Language Lab subsystem. All features are available in Teacher Console. Connection manager ensures stable and reliable connection with the students. The system automatically notifies if any problems happened between a student and teacher system. The system connection manager continuously checks for new incoming connections, If any request occurs it process the request automatically and reads out client information and displayed as nodes. Student console needs to login before starting a session. Students are able to listen to files from their own library , learn pronunciation etc. will work. But notifies the connection status in status bar. Whenever Teacher console will gets up or started, the connection manager in Student console will find the teacher automatically and establishes a connection between the server.
How System WorksWhen a student PC gets connected with the teacher PC, it automatically reads out the lessons list from the Teacher Shared Lesson database. When ever teacher adds a new file to the shared library, the system sends the new lesson details to student. Student can either play lessons directly from student console or they are able to download the lessons to their own local folder. Sharing lessons is the crucial part of LAN based learning systems. Teacher is able to take care of individual student ie. Disconnect a student from Teacher console, Peer to Peer chat, Individual file transfer etc.
