  • Technologies for Development and Learning --- innovations grow from concrete challenges Ruimin Shen, Weikai Xie and Carsten Ullrich ( rmshen/wkxie/ullrich_c@sjtu.edu.cn), e-Learning Lab, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Oct 25, 2009
  • Outline
  • Challenge 1 – Highly unbalanced education resource deployment
    • China’s higher education “985 program”
      • 39 top (among ~2000 )universities entitled
      • Biased government funding and research grants
    • Unequal distribution by province
    No. of 985 program universities Province 10 Beijing 3 Shanghai, Hubei, Shaanxi, Hunan 2 Jiangshu, Tianjin, Liaonin, Shichuan, Shangdong 1 Anhui, Zhejing, Helongjiang, Fujian, Gangsu, Congqing, Jilin 0 Remaining 15 provinces
    • disproportional admission opportunity to top universities
      • Tsinghua University's 2010 by-province admission plan
    • How technologies can help tackle this problem?
    Province Assigned quota Population Beijing 243 197M Zhejiang 42 517M … … …
  • Skyclass – Mitigate geographical education resource gap Ning Xia University IP network for interactivity Tibet University Satellite link for multimedia content broadcast SJTU Augmented Standard Natural Classroom Innovation: Right mix of transmission technologies
  • PPClass – P2P Streaming based live lecture broadcast system
    • Traditional way to deliver live lecture
    • P2P Streaming
    Issue: Need huge bandwidth and server cost when scale-up Advantage: scale-up easily with only marginal burden on server
  • www.go2class.net – Open access to SJTU continuing education, powered by PPClass technology Innovation: Open the access of premium education resource to massive audience with a scalable and cost-effective streaming media technology
  • Challenge 2 - Lack of accessible form of life-long learning for working adults
    • Huge demand of life-long learning in China
      • Current educational demographic vs “economic structure upgrade” mission
    • However, most working adults are unable to squeeze time to come to a formal class!
  • Mobile learning will be a natural fit for life-long education!
  • MobiClass – access live lecture/recorded lecture from smart phones Download at kiosk Download from web site Live streaming Support all major Symbian phones
  • PPClass Mobile – m-Learning on the new generation of smart phones
    • Touch screen operation
    • Support Android (iPhone support is coming)
    • Today’s Learning Management Systems (LMS):
      • Lack of information about the user across learning systems and learning contexts
      • Learner/teacher cannot choose learning services
    • Intelligent infrastructure incorporating widgets and existing LMSs across system boundaries
    • The ROLE Approach – right on track
    • truly personalizing learning
