  • Hi, My name is TIm Fernando, Project Manager and researcher for the Erewhon Project here in Oxford.

    I'd like to take a few minutes to tell you what the Erewhon project is all about,
    what it hopes to achieve
    how we can help youu
    and some thinks you might want to think about when creating your podcasts
  • Erewhon is a project based at Oxford University Computing Services and is funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee for 18 months until March 2010

    It also works in close collaboration with the BRII project again based here in Oxford’s Medical Sciences and Library Services

  • So what are our deliverables?

    Well first of all we have a Geo Location database, what is a geo-location database? In this case its a database which can hold the locations of geographical entities and relationships between them. For example storing the location of a department, or a pub etc

    You'll hear the the term LBS more and more in the coming years as its fast becoming a buzz word in mobile computing.
    So what this means is that we can create services which are relevant to the user's current location, for example "finding the route to my next lecture" or "which library is nearest, which also has this book I want?"

    Next we have demonstration mobile applications, i.e. services we can provide which would be useful to people on the move. e.g. give me a list of Oxford (or x university) Podcasts and let me download one

    And lastly we are to provide national guidelines on integration of mobile devices into higher/further educational institutes.
