The Impact of Advanced Multimedia Technology on the Classroom 2000
Mark R. Rajai, Keith V. Johnson East Tennessee State University
This paper studies the latest research on the impact of advanced multimedia technology on the classroom 2000. This paper focuses on one such advanced technology entitled “IPTeam Suite,” by Nexprise, Inc, which is starting to become widely used by the industry, but is relatively new to the academia. The application of the IPTeams software in data exchange, information sharing, messaging, and scheduling and documentation and its integration into classroom 2000 are discussed. A joint design course between two universities and an industrial partner, utilizing IPTeam software is also presented. Some of the other new cutting edge educational delivery mode and software such as Asynchronous Learning Networks and ZenPad used in pilot programs in leading universities are also studied.
Due to highly competitive working environment, modern businesses have adopted cutting edge technologies as a way to compete in global market place. Because of the perceived benefits of these technologies in transmission of information and the extensive use of them by the modern business world, colleges and universities have begun integrating these technologies into the classroom 2000 environment.1,2,3
In this paper we study the impact of new multimedia technology on the classroom 2000. This paper is organized as follows. In the next section, we present what is a classroom 2000 and how it functions. Next, we discuss some cutting edge new educational delivery mode and software such as Asynchronous Learning Networks and ZenPad used in pilot programs in leading universities in the United States. We then examine one such advanced technology entitled “IPTeams Suite,” by Nexprise, Inc, which is starting to become widely used by the industry4. This software has been used by industry for team collaboration in an asynchronous mode over the Internet. The software has enabled companies to out-source their work to suppliers and subcontractors and compete more effectively in the global economy. However, this software is relatively new to the academia. We then present a pilot joint course between East Tennessee State University (ETSU), Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles, CA, and their industrial consultant. The IPTeams Suite was used in a new product development course where the students from the two universities have interacted in teams of joint projects. We conclude with some discussions from our own experience with IPTeams Suite software and the pilot project.
