The application of technology in education has emerged very rapidly due to its positive effects on teaching and learning skills. Teaching applications need to be used wisely among the educators in order to enhance and improve academic performances. As we know, PowerPoint slides are a powerful aid to today's lecturer, who can use it to easily prepare dozens of slides to accompany a lecture. This dissertation will discuss the development of a Kinect application for navigating PowerPoint presentation. A main tool used to develop this application is the Kinect sensor. The Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360 (“Kinect”) has been implemented in all sorts of applications because of its convenient and inexpensive depth mapping sensor. The Kinect technology cannot operate in the classroom without being integrated with a computer or laptop, projector and other compatible software. Kinect has been proving that it has the potential to improve the integration between lecturer and student and encourage student participation in the class. To meet the most important aim of this project, which is to let the user navigate a PowerPoint presentation easily, the Kinect motion sensor used to detect human gesture and perform hand segmentation based on the depth map of the user and tracks the hands which entered active motion zone. The application then recognizes various hand gestures based on the tracking information detected. After that, perform part of mouse actions to navigate slide show by using gesture recognized. User able to enjoy realistic navigation experience using hand gestures respectively.
