2 Steps for Successful Implementation  PDA Evaluation  Mobile Deployment Strategy  Vision

3 Why PDAs and Wireless?  Immediate need for Administration to retrieve remotely  Students showing up with PDAs and wireless ethernet cards and requesting support  Growing interest among faculty and researchers for the possible uses of PDAs for data gathering  Faculty interest in evaluating how the PDA may be used in the classroom

4 PDA Evaluation Process  Identified and Acquired PDAs, ISPs and Wireless Cards/Devices  Developed Evaluation Criteria  Identified Potential Uses  Identified Next Steps

5 PDAs/Devices Evaluated  Compaq iPAQ Compaq iPAQ  Casio E-125 Casio E-125  Palm V Palm V  HP Jornada HP Jornada  Palm IIIxe Palm IIIxe  RIM 950 RIM 950

9 Internet Service Providers  Omnisky (omnisky.net)  GoAmerica (goamerica.com)  Cingular Wireless (cingular.com)

10 ISP Summary ISPSupported Devices Supported NetworksCost (Month) Omnisky Palm V, Vx, Visor, Laptops Compaq iPAQ Casio E series HP Jornada GSM, CDPD, GPRS, CDMA $59.99 $54 Prepaid GoAmerica Palm V, Vx, M500, Casio E series, Laptops HP Jornada, Compaq iPAQ, RIM 950 GSM, CDPD, GPRS, CDMA $59.99 Cingular Wireless RIM, Palm VII GPRS$59.99

11 Evaluation Criteria (PDAs)  Cost/Features  Integration/Compatibility with Current Systems  Security  Application Availability  Ease of Use/Physical Characteristics  Speed

12 Evaluation Scores (based on IT staff usage) CostSecurityIntegrationApplication Availability Ease of Use SpeedTotal Compaq Casio HP Palm V Palm IIIxe RIM scale (1 – poor, 5 – excellent)

13 Problems/Solutions  Windows Devices (Outlook CE does not support SSL Mail)  No CE Client that works well with CorporateTime Calendar  Sierra Wireless Aircard is slow (19.2 K)  Browsing Web was painfully slow (even with Cisco Ethernet card) Some websites were designed for CE  Cannot Hotsync using IMAP Eudora Mail Client – only POP  ActiveSync connection via USB does not immediately disconnect after selecting `Disconnect` on the iPAQ  Need to forward mail from Lehigh account to RIM 950 Cingular account (need to maintain 2 accounts).

14 Positives  Microsoft ActiveSync worked very well (upgraded to Windows XP with no problem)  Sierra Wireless 300 card could be used for laptops as well as iPAQ. (laptop drivers are downloadable)  Cisco card installed seamlessly in iPAQ as well as laptop. (CE drivers are downloadable)  Sierra Wireless card software installed on Windows ME/2000/XP laptop transparently.  Eudora has Client for Palm devices that supports SSL (setup ISP mail server as outgoing)

15 Stuck in the Stone Age?  Difficulties and Adversities overcome  Wireless arrives at ECU

16 Wireless Connectivity  Original discussions/conclusions  Purchase of Hardware  Map of Corridor Map of Corridor  CISCO and Compaq cards CISCO and Compaq cards  Access by phone service  Access by PDA

17 Hardware/Software Platforms  Custom application built Service IT Uses

18 Uses in Course Design  School of Education General Requirements  School of Industry and Technology Avantgo Server-based instruction

19 Uses in Course Design (cont.)  School of Medicine Transfer of Patient Data Transfer of Billing Information  School of Nursing Photos Transfer of documents Assignments

20 The Chase is On  PDA and Wireless Justified Use? Resistance to change? Success

21 Technical Support  Groups Involved What support is offered  Problem solving on campus/off campus

22 Hardware Deployment  Wireless Uses (laptops and PDAs)  Cradles in Labs for Hot Syncing How does it work

23 Program Assessment  Does it Work? MDEverywhere at SOM Main Campus of ECU

24 Potential Uses  Library information access (in the stacks)  Data gathering and downloading from the field (EES and College of Education)  Classroom communication (beaming homework assignments, , accessing Blackboard)  Taking classroom notes and sharing information  Downloading electronic Journal, E-books  Behavior monitoring (current CS project)

25 Leaps and Bounds  Technology is always in motion  Success measured  Future endeavors

26 Coming Soon/News  iPAQ 3835 – 10 hour battery life, 64 MB RAM (coming soon)  Sierra Wireless 710 wireless card for GSM/GPRS wireless networks (up to 170k) (coming soon)  Sierra Wireless and Casio team up to deliver wireless solutions for the Casio PDA (coming soon)  Empower Technologies’ Linux DA – Linux based PDA (released September 2001)  Sharp - Zaurus SL-5000D Linux/java based handheld (released November 2001) Is this the future?
