ABSTRACT

    Techniques are presented for automatic retrieval of content from previous online presentations that is related to content being currently presented. This allows a user (presenter or attendee) to review previously related shared content, which can be helpful to enhance an understanding of currently presented content.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

    Human memory for detail sharing is in general very limited. During an online conference/meeting presentation, a presenter sometimes presents previously related shared content to help attendees enhance their comprehension of the content that is being current presented/shared. To do so, the presenter has to manually locate previously shared content to share it again during the current meeting/presentation. The attendees also need to review the previously presented and related content. However, in a live online meeting, the attendees have no way to retrieve and view the previously shared content (from a previous meeting/presentation).

    A solution is presented herein that allows for automatic real-time detection and retrieval of shared content that relates to what is currently being shared and presented. An analysis and comparison of the past shared/presented content and the currently shared content is made to find the most closely related previously presented snapshots. These snapshots will be prompted to users for review. By real-time automatically detecting relevant snapshots of previous presentations, a convenient and effective way is provided Copyright 2014 Cisco Systems, Inc.

for both the presenter and attendees to enhance their comprehension of the subject matter of the current presentation.

    As shown below in Figure 1, while a presenter shares slides, related snapshots of previously presented content are retrieved, and placed into a pop-up green bar called "related snapshots". The show mode of green bar - "related snapshots" is similar to a meeting bar. When a user moves his/her mouse to the area, then the entire contents of the related snapshots are displayed, as shown in Figure 2. If the user moves his/her mouse out of that area, the display reverts to that shown in Figure 1.

    As shown in Figure 3 below, currently shared content is denoted as "1", and the other two related snapshots are denoted as "2" and "3". Once the presenter wants to review and share snapshot "3" with all the attendees again, s/he can double-click the "3" snapshot, and the "3" snapshot will be shared as shown in Figure 4. To remind the presenter which snapshot is the one that is part of the current presentation, a red border may be provided around that snapshot as shown in Figure 4. The presenter can press the related snapshot sharing by closing the "x" button or directly double clicking the red border of...
