A general talk about the Enabling Remote Activity (ERA) project, no previous knowledge required.
We will introduce the ERA project- originally a request in 2006 from Earth and Environmental Sciences to help support a mobility impaired student participate in a geology summer school for the 'Ancient Mountains' (SXR339) course. We have developed a mobile, rapidly deployed network system to enable remote communication and transfer of video and still digital images between students at a base location and participants in the field. For this presentation we'll provide a general introduction and discuss some of the teaching and technical challenges. We will focus on this year's outing, teaching two students for a week each in the Scottish Highlands.
