Emerging Techologies in a Tele-Collaborative Design Studio between Pennsylvania State University And Carleton University

Abstract: The research project investigates the use of a network-enabled platform (NEP) involving a combination of technologies that include: high bandwidth network infrastructure; high-performance visualization and computer cluster solutions; standard and high definition tele-presence/communication infrastructure; co-located immersive environments; and a range of modeling and imaging applications. The NEP enabled student teams in multiple locations to collaborate via on-demand, synchronous access to project data, visualization, modeling, simulation and multimodal interpersonal communication tools through a web service based dashboard interface that hid the logistic and technical complexities to the user. As a preliminary report on a proof-of-concept design studio conducted during the spring semester of 2007 between the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) at Carleton University in Ottawa and the Immersive Environment Laboratory (IEL) at Pennsylvania State University, the paper first describes the implementation of this networkcentric collaborative design platform. The report articulates the “staging” of the conditions of possibility for a dynamic interplay between technological mediation and the reality of making, then compares the use of high bandwidth technology with customized symmetrical toolsets in the tele-collaborative educational environment, versus commercial toolsets deployed over moderate bandwidth connections. In each setting, the collaborative environment is assessed according to issues encountered by students and design outcomes. The effectiveness of the digitally mediated collaborative studio is also gauged in terms of student reaction to the learning process via feedback surveys and questionnaires.

A2D2A2D… Seamless transformations from analog to digital worlds in support of global teamwork

Abstract: In today’s communication intensive environment the rapidly changing nature of work, learning, and play is driven by more and more collaboration, globalization, digital media, interactive devices and spaces, mobility, and convergence of virtual and physical spaces and places. The people and their knowledge are the key corporate asset. Managing, transferring, and reusing knowledge can lead to greater competitive advantage, improved products, and more effective teamwork. The most effective means of knowledge creation and transfer from experts to novices in both education and industry settings is through stories and dialogue using analog channel such as verbal discourse, ges-tures, annotations, and sketching. Current knowledge capture and reuse solutions do not afford to capture and utilize the relevance embedded in these multimodal streams of communication. This paper explores innovative approaches to support (1) seamless transformations from analog and digital worlds, and (2) cross-media retrieval and interactive re-play of multimedia content in support of global teamwork.

Keywords: Analog, digital, knowledge management, dialogue, gesture, sketch, data mining, cross-media capture re-trieval and replay
