AGN demo - Improving teaching and research
Tools for Collaborative Teaching and Research demonstration Thursday 11 March 2010 at 14.15 in 3W4.13
Access Grid Nodes (AGNs). These are teaching rooms equipped with advanced IP video conferencing to enable collaborative research between institutions. A number of similarly equipped rooms may be linked simultaneously. Typically an AGN equipped room will have up to 4 remotely controlled cameras, 4 projectors, microphones, teaching aids and a sophisticated PC and audio system. These combine to link the rooms allowing presentations and discussions to be shared.
For more information on what they are and how they can be useful please look at these pages:
The University now has 4 AGNs, 3 funded by research grants and one for general use. There is a dedicated AGN technician, Tony Gallagher (A.Gallagher@bath.ac.uk) ext. 5402
Tony will be running demonstration sessions of the technology throughout the semester the next session is on Thursday 11 March 2010 at 14.15 in 3W4.13.
If you would like to see how your teaching or research can benefit by linking you easily with colleagues in other institutions please book a place with email@example.com or contact Tony for an informal discussion first.
If you are unable to attend this session but would like to register an interest to be included on subsequent sessions, please email your details.
