Our project is to understand the collaborative learning methods that are being practiced currently in the smart classrooms and discussions and build a cost effective system that can be used with minimal resources. The goal of our project is to build a system that improves the quality and effectiveness of collaborative learning in smart classrooms or in group discussions and to bring them closer to as many people as possible by making it affordable.
The students in a school or employees in a business meetings can collaborate easily with our project
Learning is made easy using 3D models and data while collaboration.
Learning has become fun and awesome using the interaction with 3D models.
Several user studies and interviews were conducted to gather requirements. The following are the main requirements gathered:
Several sketches have been drawn by brain storming before "making the right design". Check out the sketch diary for the detailed sketch iterations
Formative evaluation is done while the system is in design phase before implementation. Wizard of Oz method has been used to evaluate the system in design. Refer to the formative evaluation documentation for further details
Our tool was evaluated by two users who were given four tasks. Then the various metrics such as task success, task efficiency were calculated. The user experience and the feedback were recorded using SUS forms.
The four tasks were as follows:
The following metrics were calculated from the summative evaluation:
The following questions were asked from the SUS forms and the corresponding rating achieved on 1-5 scale (1 being low and 5 being high scores)
The following observations were made from feedback by the users:
