Technology Research and Development Future Classroom
III has developed the first prototype system for Taiwan’s future classroom. This would help enterprise upgrade and promote e-learning enablement.
Through these years, III has also developed the second generation of “future classroom platform” with innovative Mathematics software and with multi-touch and hand gesture recognition; it allows junior high school students to have fun while learning Geometry. This technological breakthrough surpasses the current touch screen limitation as it creates an innovative classroom to learn from the “Happy Magic Electronic Desk” designed with 32 touch-control sensors , which allow students to work in groups and solve arithmetic problems together. Mobile Learning Application
This entails the development of devices and a cross-platform Mobile Learning application that supports the COPE (Create Once, Publish Everywhere) feature and addresses the time-consuming work involved in creating the suitable platform for digital content. The development covers EeePC and iPhone mobile devices.
Chinese Language Semantic Analysis
To improve the Chinese language recognition rate, III has combined grammar and statistical methods based on a knowledge database that detects basic character-usage errors and corrects them. By collecting common mistakes while editing, such as misspelling or incorrect characters in the knowledge database, the system’s judgment capability is maximized through statistical methods in the character database. This technology has detection and correction capabilities; therefore, it is the ideal tool to help high school students as well as foreign students who are learning Chinese. The Chinese language teaching platform has been successfully tested on Vietnamese students, with the cooperation of III, ASUS, and Gjun Information Corporation. e-Learning
