Ubiquitous Presenter is a program designed to help teachers interact more closely with students. There are several parts to this program: the instructor's interface, which is closely related to Classroom Presenter (developed at the University of Washington); the web interface, where students can see instructors' slides and ink; and NoteBlogger, a program designed for student "bloggers" to take their own notes on instructor slides.
I'm working primarily on NoteBlogger. My first task was to improve the NoteBlogger GUI so that the layout can switch between landscape and portrait modes, making it easier to use on tablets in slate mode.
My long-term project for the summer will involve modifying NoteBlogger in still somewhat-unspecified ways to make it possible for students to take private notes, along with the public notes that are posted on the server.
