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.
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.
RT Lab is India's first remote triggered laboratory in the computer science and engineering area. As wireless sensor networks (WSN) are emerging worldwide, the lack of e-learning facilities degrades the availability and usage of WSN applications, mainly in universities.
