Enabling Remote Activity (ERA) -an introduction and an update
This event took place on Wednesday 17 September 2008 at 11:30
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.

We are also inviting top experts in AI and Knowledge Technologies to discuss major socio-technological topics with an audience that comprises both members of the Knowledge Media Institute, as well as the wider staff at The Open University. Differently from our seminar series, these events follow a Q&A format.
