There are two main problems in the present style of education in which there are one teacher and many students in a class. The first problem is to improve communication between one teacher and many students in classes. The second problem is to realize personal education using IT systems. To solve the above two problems, we propose color image processing applications for education in this chapter. To improve communication between one teacher and many students, we realized automatic response analyzer that counts automatically students’ answers using color cards raised by students. The system is an easy-to-use simple system, which only consists of a PC, web cameras, and color cards. The recognition rate was 98% in brighter class and 93% in darker class. To realize automatic personal education, we realized two interactive IT systems using color image recognition. First, we realized color learning system with color analysis functions. Using the system, students can learn color distribution in 3D color space for their selected images. Second, we realized visual programming system that judges automatically the correctness of the graphical image output by student program. If the student’s output image is not correct, the system can point out the wrong part in the output image.
