Briggs, L. (2009) Universities Use Collaborative Software To Share Classroom Campus Technology April 1
An article about ClassSpot, an interactive multi-screen system for classroom teaching. ‘ClassSpot makes a classroom with one or more large public display screens interactive. Essentially, each of the large public screens in class can become collaborative devices, with students and faculty able to contribute and manipulate content on one or all of the public screens from their own computers. Each user’s computer screen can also become a collaborative device.’
Is this though another example of donkeys pulling steam engines? Why do students need to be in the classroom in the first place? What’s the cost?
