Abstract

iDTV is a technology whose potential for learning is being explored just now. The development of this technology coincides with rapid technological advances and the increasing demand for lifelong learning as well as leisure time learning. More and more adults need skills training or retraining, children and young people need help with numeracy and literacy, retired citizens enjoy the leisure to travel and want to learn about historic sites and monuments they plan to visit. Mobile learning has emerged as a “justtime” learning solutions, but it is yet in the experimental stages and broad based delivery is not available. There are many options and solutions addressing the learning needs of an increasingly technological, knowledge-based society. Therefore, it is important that the traditional TV, the most popular media format should address an increasingly compelling market. Most people count TV as a familiar friend they trust and feel ease using. In statistical reports nearly every European household has got minimum one TV set. Edutainment is already available, such as the Discovery and History channels that have loyal, steady audiences, but these are for passive viewing and provide few opportunity for interactive learning that are necessary for knowledge application.
