The iClassroom follows on from the iSpace and is the second purpose build Intelligent Environment in the University of Essex. Built with the aim to aid research into supplementing education with intelligent environments.
The iClassroom is the main research testbed used by the iEL. This is a flexible intelligent environment that can be deployed to support a range of teaching and learning scenarios. This includes distance and remote education, formalised lectures and tutorials, and also more collaborative problem-solving learning activities. The iClassroom (which is a sister to the iSpace used by the wider iEG) provides a smart environment in which learning can take place. It includes a pervasive computing technology infrastructure coupled with state of the art learning equipment and resources.
