Projects
The DocDel Plus project added new functionality to the platform used to deliver e-reserves and other documents for patrons of the Gottesman Libraries. The project restructured the system to allow patrons to create individual class sessions within courses, and added the capacity to include video files for access by students enrolled in classes. The Plus system is equally accessible from all course platforms.
EdLab partnered with HBO and Time Warner to create a program called “Watch it and Learn!” which provided access to films and teaching materials at cost to schools across the country. Schools in California, New York, New Hampshire and other states have used tools created by this program to teach political and civic responsibility through films like “Recount” and “John Adams.” HBO and the EdLab are working on cutting edge interactive teaching materials that will be accessed on line. This project was supported by grants from the Time Warner Foundation and HBO.
The Collaboration Support System (CSS) is a web application designed to foster enhanced collaborative experiences among the students and faculty at Teachers College, Columbia University. The system joins the creation of electronic collaboration with physical room reservations to promote efficient and rich collaborative experiences. CSS encourages collaboration by providing “bonus points” to users who:
  • decide to make their collaboration sessions public to outside persons.
