Funded by HP Technology for Teaching Grant Initiative 2006
The project will define tools that enable students to augment the course materials in an interactive way, during or after the classes, to retrieve these materials at a later stage and to share them with other students or instructors. The traditional processes of annotating written materials will be extended by using technological support, in particular mobile wireless devices. During the class the instructor will present the class materials that can include slides, other images, audio or video sequences or simulations. The students will be able to annotate these materials or illustrate the current topic of the class with their own materials,using the Tablet PCs. At a later stage, typically after the class, all these materials will be integrated with the overall video capture of the lecture. Each student can use its own annotations or import the materials that were contributed by other colleagues. This project benefits from results of a previous project (VideoStore) that implements video capture of lectures and playback with integrated materials. The new proposal allows to extend this concept by providing classroom support to the collaborative annotation process.
