With augmented reality applications enabling a speaker (or instructor, teacher, you name it) to see the audience and simultaneously view the content they present, some applications have emerged that allow to create slideshows and display their annotations to the speaker. This is still a one-way street that aims at helping a speaker to work with created slides in a presentation. How about we change the game and let the audience provide live feedback to tomorrow’s presenters? With connected audiences bringing their own mobile devices, we can bring the presented screen content (more frequent refreshes than slides, but less than video streaming) to the audience’s phones and tablets (or even remotely connected participants).
ScreenShare will allow presenters to see the content they present and feedback of the audience all in a combining mobile application on the Epson Moverio BT-200. Rather than focusing on a single desktop application, ScreenShare will allow for a generic presentation of content, hints, and audience feedback together with a desktop or laptop computer used for content presentation. Leveraging web-based technologies, ScreenShare will allow presenters to see scaled feedback ratings from their audience (such as sliding from red/”I did not comprehend” to green/”I am following”). The constant feedback will be a great benefit, for example in future classrooms with many pupils or students as well as remotely connected learners: the presenter (or educator) can help the audience’s following (or student learning process) by being able to continuously adjust pace as content is presented. Outsmarting “Clickers,” ScreenShare leverages existing devices through web technologies (cross-platform for the audience) and will also enable questions to be posted by the audience (integrating with the presented content).
