Topic: Internet of Things(IoT) and Augmented Reality for E-Learning

With the advent of the Internet of Things (IOT) technology, we will be expecting all the smart devices around us to provide various services in real-time. When this IoT technology is combined with Augmented Reality (AR), it will provide end users with real time as well as real world information. One of the prime advantages of AR combining with IoT is the bridging of the gap between the real and digital worlds around us. The ease of downloading features and scope of dynamic usage which AR brings to the smart devices and is expected to bring to the IoT is beyond human imagination! The education sector is expected to gain significantly using these technologies.

The goal of technology in education is to make, learning easier, faster and more engaging for the students and to equip the instructor with powerful tools to provide more relevant courseware to their students. With introducing AR in education, we shall be able to provide contextually aware, more relevant, engaging and interactive courseware to the students, which would keep them interested in subject. Also, through IoT, the physical devices can provide context that the AR ecosystem would use for contextually aware rendering of multimedia content. Medical education domain is expected to gain significantly using IOT and AR. It is also observed that the training in the areas of equipment maintenance could gain significantly by applying these technologies judiciously. For eg. The conventional software virtual lab solution does not provide a real feel of performing an experiment. However, using IOT and AR technology, a sensor enabled Hardware based real lab environment can be created for performing the volumetric analysis experiments in chemistry by using WATER instead of Chemicals.

C-DAC has developed few AR products in education domain – AR Board, AR Book and AR Game. AR Board is a virtual writing board on which a user can write with a laser pointer. It uses projection based AR Technology by creating a virtual environment for contextual information presentation, and facilitates real-time interaction with the content. AR Book is a standard book that has been instrumented with AR markers printed, which when scanned would show augmented, 3D interactive content, videos, audio and animations contextually, on a printed book, thus adding new dimensionality to it. AR Game is a game based learning mobile application that can be used by students for learning through playing, and for evaluating their knowledge. The technology of these products has been transferred to industry for their further development and proliferation to various educational institutes.

Topic: ICT Solutions for School Education

Despite the availability of much content and resources relevant to school educations, effective adoption of these is quite low in most of the schools. The reasons are many including lack of awareness, inadequate involvement of teachers, inability to adopt in a pedagogically meaningful manner, etc. At cdac Mumbai, we have developed a few tools which are relevant to schools. These include simulated labs for science and maths (olabs), facilitiating adoption of e-books (ebasta), and assessment and monitoring system. We will introduce these resources and in that context discuss adoption of technology in school education. We may also look at some good quality open source resources in this regard.

Topic: E-Learning for Differently Abled

The trend of convergence of knowhow from multi – disciplinary approach, has carved several avenues to innovate teaching and training approaches for Persons who are Differently Abled “Divyaang”. Gains from application of Technology on domains like Health, Education and Disability Rehabilitation, have been proven beyond doubt. This paper highlights examples of collaborative work undertaken by Experts across domains of Technology and Disability Rehabilitation, that have influenced optimal use of customized technology for individualised needs. This has enabled applications of technology to class room, home and community settings. The gains from this collaboration are also realised by students in regular schools as well. This enabled access for all learners challenged by discrepancy in languages used at home and school, cultural diversity, shortcomings in teaching methodology and rural urban divide.

Many may visualize condition of disability to be portrayed as condition of limited functioning. Application of technology has demonstrated that functioning among differently abled persons can be transformed and evolved, to higher functioning levels. Existing practices through application of technology will be discussed with prevalent examples from Indian context.

This paper concludes by listing areas that have the potential for future collaboration between Experts across domains like Technology, Education, Health, Women and Child Welfare and Disability Rehabilitation require to follow guidelines recommended by UNCRPD (2006). India being a signatory, is obliged to work on a national mandate, to transform lives of Differently Abled in our country to become inclusive, by realizing their rights, This is viewed as a possibility through innovative use of technology.

Topic: Blended Learning with Digital and Virtual Classrooms

Learning in India faces two major challenges – the attention span of students in the classroom and the shortage of good teachers. We try to address these major issues with technology interventions in the classroom and online solutions.

Digital Classroom: Many students in a class typically have attention span of 10 to 15 minutes, whereas our lectures are around 50 minutes. Research shows that the attention span can be improved with active learning interventions. We provide some paradigms and technology tools for making the class more interactive. Our Digital Classroom provides interactivity in classroom using Mobiles, Clickers, and Amrita Cards (based on Plickers.)

Online and Center-based Portal: The Amrita Online Learning Portal is an e-learning portal with online content, activities and assessments. The entire portal can also be installed at the centers. The online portal and the center-based portal are synchronized together and provide content and data caching mechanisms.

Virtual Classroom (A-VIEW): is used by expert teachers to teach thousands of students simultaneously online. A-VIEW works on internet, VPN, LAN and satellite networks. A-VIEW mobile-based apps are available for quick interaction and assessments.

These three solutions – Digital Classroom, Learning Portal (Center-Based) and Virtual Classroom A-VIEW together provide an overall blended learning for the learners, content maintenance for the teachers and reports/dashboards for the administrators.
