    2. 2. EducationInformation Lectures Reflection Mentoring Assessment Forum/LMS Meetings: Text documents Social media Skype, phone, web, video conference Exams: online, digital school type, study hall News, messages Lecture books, learning Forum/LMS Discussion, chat objects Web site, university portal Tests: LMS, survey Podcast: Audio, video Study hall, kitchen table Forum/LMS Text documents Notes and reports: LMS Virtual meetings: web Links and references Podcast Email meetings, video conference
    3. 3. ResearchResearch community Research project Data Analysis Publication, dissemination Data capture: Report, notes Organizational support Project proposal and plan sensors, surveys, interviews Data crunching Paper publication Data storage: Coffee breaks Collaboration tools text, audio, database, video Discussion, chat Research based teaching Talking with colleagues Document sharing Data analysis Review related material Collaboration tools: video meetings, shared workspaceProcessing related research Email, email, email Data access Curated data access
    4. 4. What do we need? Collaboration tools  Speaking to all senses, more than text   Easy to use, play well with unified communication tools  Students initiate (eCampus web meeting: students host) Lecture capture  Power of the lecture  Automated, dependable  Sound is more important than moving pictures Video as a process  Video at your fingertips: practice session, reflection 24/7 availability
    5. 5. Video typesCommunication Video production Realtime:  Editing? phone, Skype, web  Capture live, no edit meeting, videoconferen  Production ce  Life time  Instant: streaming, process  1-to-1  Semester or forever  1-to-many  Production site  Many-to-many  Workplace Asyncronous  Lecture room  1-to-1  Studio  Practice  1-to-many  Many-to-many

    11. 11. Dependencies Wireless network: eduroam et al  The wired network is for servers  Wireless is for users Student reality:  Heterogeneous: Tablets, smart phones, PCs, Macs  Digital competence: varies wildly Lecturer reality:  Time bound: 45 min lectures, no extra work  Digital competence varies Available solutions  Education is not entertainment  Collaboration and information availability matter!
    12. 12. Dependencies: server side technicalissues Aggregated bandwidth  Latency, jitter variations, volume Medium scale video  Real time is small-medium  On-demand is all through the day and night Storage: video takes space, HD video takes more Access management  Identity layer: depending on federation technology  Missing piece: virtual organizations integrated with university live organization and research project Shift from local servers to cloud services
    13. 13. Missing parts Digital competence  Where are the changes in education taking us?  Digital skills Wireless networks everywhere  Mobile networks and Wifi  Need more eduroam! Media management integrated with learning support  Class rooms integrated with learning environment Virtual organizations  Class groups, study groups, research projects
