1 21 st Century Learning P. Anandan Managing Director Microsoft Research India

2 1-12-20052 Challenges in Teaching and Collaboration  Amplify the voice of the teacher  Extend and expand the reach of the teacher and the classroom  Enhance the learning experience  Seamless interaction between teacher, students, and learning materials  Strengthen teamwork  Bring the meeting home

3 1-12-20053 Technology: Good or Bad?

4 1-12-20054 …A little better?

5 1-12-20055 How about this? Classroom on your lap

6 1-12-20056 Technologies  Conference XP  Tablet PC as a medium for teaching and learning  Real-time collaboration and whiteboard capture

7 Conference XP Courtesy: Chris Moffat, MSR

8 1-12-20058 Conference XP  A high-end conferencing system for:  Collaboration  Distance Learning  Inexpensive and easy to deploy  Done in partnership with several US universities  Supports advanced interactive learning (using TabletPC)

9 1-12-20059 ConferenceXP Research Platform  High-quality, multi-point conferencing  A framework for the development of real-time collaborative applications for teaching and learning

10 1-12-200510 ConferenceXP Scenarios  High end real-time collaboration  Transform distributed learning  Energize wireless-enabled classrooms

11 1-12-200511 Research Collaboration Research Collaboration  High-quality, multipoint conferencing  Full-screen real-time video at 30 fps  Up to 10-way conferencing on dual processor, 3.0 GHz workstation

12 1-12-200512 Real-time Collaboration Real-time Collaboration  Built-in presentation capability  Peer-to-peer multicast architecture  Simple approach to adding 3 rd party applications

22 Enhanced Meeting Experience

23 1-12-200523 We all attend meetings/classes …  Complaints  A class may be distributed (location-shifted)  Cannot hear other people clearly from a remote site  Cannot see who is in a remote site  Cannot see what is written on the whiteboard  Feel partially disconnected when I am remote  When watch a recorded class (time-shifted)  Can only view the meeting in a linear way  No clue about the meeting dynamics  Develop MM technologies and systems to alleviate the pains  Allow time-shifted participation  Off-line viewing  Allow location-shifted participation

24 1-12-200524 Real-Time Room Conferencing (Eric Rudolph, Yong Rui, Liwei He, Rico Malvar, Michael Cohen, Ivan Tashev)  Key features  High fidelity audio (via microphone array)  High quality video (via wide-angle cam, dewarping)  Live physical whiteboard capture  Physical document capture and sharing

25 1-12-200525

26 1-12-200526 Real-time Whiteboard Capture (Liwei He, Zhengyou Zhang) Goal: turn a video stream of whiteboard into a low bit rate data stream that contains only the changes on the whiteboard. Solution: use computer vision techniques to analyze the video sequence to determine which changes represent inks on the whiteboard.

28 1-12-200528 Conclusion  Technology can go beyond being a tool  It can change the experience  Enable new scenarios  Enhance the quality of the experience  Extend the reach of the teacher  It can revolutionize the way learning is done

29 1-12-200529 A Vision For the Future
