As a kind of Smart Space, real-time interactive virtual classroom is an important type of remote learning. However, available systems nowadays are not adaptable large-scale user access and cannot accommodate heterogeneous computing devices and different networks access either. Furthermore, these systems are almost desktop-based. The Smart Classroom Project based on pervasive computing mode whose focus is on supporting software infra-structure, context-aware computing, implicit human-computer

So the teacher can instruct the remote students just like face-to-face teaching in a conventional classroom. All these developed technologies has been successfully integrated and demonstrated in a prototype system. The efficiency of our researches has been tested by the demo.
