Real-time Communication Using WebRTC
MetadataShow full item record
This paper introduces a new Real-time Communication technology. Some of the technology’s applications could be in the education field, but are not limited only to education. The technology could be used with any system need, video and audio conferencing, such as medical uses or even online gaming. WebRTC is a free and open source project that provides web browsers and mobile applications with real-time communication (RTC) via a simple application programming interface (API). It allows video, audio and data to work inside a web page by allowing a direct peer to peer communication between two browsers, eliminating the need for a server or browser plugins or downloading a native application. The WebRTC project is supported by Google, Microsoft, Mozilla and Opera, and it is being standardized through the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
