Wireless-Enabled Law School Classroom

Senior Project: 2003-2004
Sukhbans (Raji) Deol, Mandeep Gill, Daniel Mayer, Luke Pahler and Brice Pellé

The Law School of the University of Colorado Boulder offers challenging subjects to their students every semester. However, Law School professors noticed that many times there exists little to no communication between them and the students during class sessions. This meant that the professors were not always aware of how well the students in the class understood the material that was being covered. Since most Law School students possess laptops and the Law School building had wireless-enabled classrooms, a computer-based system that would facilitate more interaction between the professor and students during class was desired.

This web-based system uses the wireless infrastructure of the Law School building and student and professor laptops to provide a better educational experience for the students. These interactive wireless classrooms have allowed professors to measure the students' understanding of concepts and ideas in "real time" during lecture.

The system is very simple to use and administer. It allows the following features during a class session:

  • A way for the professor to post questions to the class and to get feedback from the students on their understanding of the issue.

  • A way for the professor to poll the class on various topics and issues.

  • A way for students to pose questions and to provide feedback on how useful they think a student-posed question is.

In addition to these class time features, the system provides an extensive set of functionality for managing students, professors, classes, and questions.
