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.

National Knowledge Network (NKN): A Gateway to Global Classroom

This proposal seeks to Architect, Design, Develop and deploy a Cross-functional, Multi-Media, Multi-Channel, High Definition, Interactive, Immersive, Adaptive Classroom experience– a University without walls and borders, that effectively uses the high bandwidth, low latency worldwide network provided by the NKN to enable students attend classes of higher education at eminent national and international universities.

Labs

  • Wireless Multimedia Lab
    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.
  • Remote Triggered Lab
    India's first remote triggered lab in Computer Science. It Provides practical experience of designing & implementing wireless sensor networks algorithms in both indoor and outdoor conditions. It also Provides web-based interface to allow remote experiments to program the sensor nodes.
