CABER Online at BETT 2003Colin Barrett, Friday 10 January 2003 | Annotate
The CABER Online project was one of a number of schools' broadband internet projects to be showcased at the BETT 2003 educational technology show at London's Olympia Exhibition Centre. The project's funding body, the East of England Broadband Network (E2BN), is one of several regional broadband consortia whose responsibility it is to create the UK's National Grid for Learning, and whose presence at this year's BETT show was designed to highlight the potential for broadband connectivity in schools. At very short notice, KMi was invited to compile a rolling demo of CABER Online for display on the UK Regional Broadband Consortia stand. Rather than produce a standard Powerpoint or Director presentation, CABER project staff built an XML-based presentation which ran from an internal server and which could therefore be updated at a moment's notice. This presentation was compiled in less than a day in readiness for the show's opening on Wednesday 8th January. CABER Online is the successor to the immensely-successful CLUTCH Project, and provides the means by which a number of pilot schools in the eastern counties can develop skills in the use of digital video and share their curriculum resources using a custom-built Digital Media Library.
