Classroom Presenter 3
Classroom Presenter is a Tablet PC-based interaction system that supports the sharing of digital ink on slides between instructors and students. When used as a presentation tool, Classroom Presenter allows the integration of digital ink and electronical slides, making it possible to combine the advantages of whiteboard style and slide based presentation. The ability to link the instructor and student devices, and to send information back and forth provides a mechanism for introducing active learning into the classroom and creates additional feedback channels.
We are pleased to announce the release of Classroom Presenter 3. This new version of the system has a more robust implementation of networking, making it easier to use as the basis of an interactive classroom. The real time inking now provides a smooth rendition of digital ink, with very little delay between the instructor and the public display. Other improvements, such as the ability to load powerpoint slides directly enhance the work flow.
This short video shows the basic Classroom Presenter functionality and some of the pedagogical advantages. A new video shows the use of Classroom Presenter in a distance course taught between UW, Microsoft, and Lahore University, Pakistan.
Detailed instructions about using Presenter 3 can be found here in the Getting Started guide. A mailing list [presenter-profs] has been set up for users of Presenter. If you want to be added to the list, send mail to Richard Anderson.
