Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications is currently designing, developing, and deploying a multi-site, multi-modal, multi-channel, interactive, immersive classroom experience via the Amrita National Knowledge Network (NKN) Global Classroom project. The aim is to create “an institution without walls and borders ”, which connects various institutions, researchers, experts, and students – around the world – and brings them under one roof. Video and audio stream with multiple perspectives are linked together in real-time to create a shared media and knowledge environment. The NKN Global Classroom project was announced at the 2nd US-India Network Enabled Research Collaboration Workshop held in Washington D.C. in March 2012.
Amrita Wireless Multimedia Lab provides an experimentation platform for developing low-cost educational technology platforms. This lab hosts a variety of tools including a host of specialized depth detection, PTZ, leap motion devices. A conglomerate of these devices provides a perfect platform for architecting a next-generation classroom system using a host of computer vision algorithms such as gesture detection and recognition, participant localization, etc. This lab also functions as a testbed in conducting evaluatory experiments to measure the efficacy of deployment.
