Abstract

In this paper we present our ongoing research about the integration of ubiquitous computing systems into classroom settings, in order to give basic support for some classroom and field activities. We have developed some web application components using Java technology and configured a classroom with wireless network access and a web camera for our purposes. In this classroom the students interact between them and with the professor through an Internet enabled PDA, using the different modules described in this paper. We include our evaluations about the performance and usability of the system in a computer science related course of the University of Tokushima, other practical uses and the future research and development work.
