  1. 1. Jozef Janitor, Peter Fecilak, Frantisek Jakab
  2. 2.  Education  Video  TelePresence  Teaching with TelePresence  Feedback from students  Conclusion
  3. 3. “… has not been significantly changed in the last 2000 years …”  Books  From unique handwritten papyrus to PDF  Give students the best Teacher  What to do with rural areas?  eLearning  Deliver PDFs with an LMS (aka Moodle)?  Where is our teacher?
  4. 4. … by the end of 2014 all video content will exceed 91% of the global Internet traffic …  It’s the next “killer app”!  youtube, hulu, netflix, …  Video-conferencing  Emotions, body language, eye-contact  Face-to-face
  5. 5.  Full HD (1080p) conferencing  Advanced high quality audio  Lighting  Room, color, etc.  Simple to use  Avoid Layer 8 issues  No questions like: IP address? IP what? Ha?!?  Experience
  6. 6.  Commercial  AT&T, TATA, T-COM, …  TPAS (TelePresence As a Service)  “edu”  National R&E networks ▪ Over-provisioned networks  Yes, we want to communicate!  National Lambda Rail (NLR US) SBC

  10. 10.  2 weeks  Mo-Th  16:00 – 20:00 TUKE  7:00 – 11:00 PVUSD
  11. 11.  Good afternoon, Good morning  30GB of I/O data b/w US and SR per session  Face-to-face communication  Emotions  Gestures  Body language … this is like real, even better …
  12. 12. … the teacher of the Teaching@TelePresence course can see the students in their real life- size, he registers emotions on students’ faces, gestures and general body language of students sitting on the other side of the world … … students can interactively ask questions or add comments in the very same spontaneous manner as in a real classroom …
  13. 13. Question Average Rank (min=1, max=5) Understanding of an instructor via TelePresence vs. via normal in-class training 4.86 Interactivity of the course via TelePresence vs. via normal in-class training 4.00 "Falling asleep" or feeling tired in course via TelePresence vs. via normal in-class training 2.71 Ease of use of your TelePresence installation (calling in, connecting a PC, sharing a screen, etc.) 4.71 Sound quality in yourTelePresence room 4.86 Video quality in yourTelePresence room 5.00 Presentation screen quality in yourTelePresence room 5.00 Sitting in aTelePresence room vs. in a normal classroom 4.71 What is your over-all satisfaction with the first ever Teaching@TelePresence course? 5
  14. 14.  What is the biggest difference between a course that is via T@TP and a normal in- class training with local instructor?  I don't see a big difference at all. It feels as though the instructor is in the room with you and there is no disconnect between the students and teacher. I felt more comfortable in this setting than in a face-to-face setting  That more of the students had access to a high quality instructor
  15. 15.  Are there any advantages or disadvantages of a course that is going through TelePresence over normal in- class course?  I think the advantages far outweigh disadvantages. I have taken many, many classes over my educational career and I got more out of this class than any other class
  16. 16.  Would you attend another course over TelePresence?  100% YES  0% NO  Would you rather attend the next course over TelePresence or in-class?  100% TelePresence  0% In-class
  17. 17.  The TelePresence was easy to attend and pay attention to while sitting in class with a face-to-face instructor can be tedious and boring  I like being in a small class and not having to deal with other students. Because sometimes other students are unmotivated and distracting in a traditional classroom environment
  18. 18.  Teaching@TelePresence is a real, viable solution that competes with classrooms  Education is being transformed  Deliver THE BEST TEACHER ON THE WORLD  Reach out to rural areas! …together we are more powerful than we ever could be apart! Together we can change everything …
