The needs and focus of the University of Guelph-Humber community are constantly evolving – our research and development initiatives make sure our technologies and services evolve along with them.
We are pursuing the following initiatives to promote a more engaging learning, teaching and working environment through new and improved instructional hardware, software and online services.
We are using Interactive Whiteboard technologies to enhance the instructional strategies of our faculty and educational experience of our students.
We are researching portable, low-cost computing hardware such as the Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized, multi-use computer that can serve as a portable media streaming server, cloud computing server, and more.
Team Share is a self-hosted cloud storage and sharing solution powered by the open source platform, Owncloud. The service is being offered to Media Studies faculty, students, and support staff.
We are researching the theoretical and practical uses of these new, ultra-resolution devices. As these technologies gain popularity in the media industry, our goal is to analyze the growing number of student-produced media projects and propose a well-defined production workflow to ensure inter-format compatibility, while adhering to established industry standards.
The demand for using consumer-level technology in an educational environment is increasing. Our research and testing of Apple AirPlay technologies will help us assess how best to apply Apple Airplay to meet the specific educational needs of the University of Guelph-Humber and how these technologies may impact the University's learning environment.
This repository hosts a growing collection of digital image and video content produced at the university. Here are some of the features that make this system unique and essential:
We have developed several platforms to showcase the work of our Media Studies students. Some of these platforms include:
This pilot ethnographic research project is based on a customized digital asset management system. Ethnomedia is an ethnographic research platform that uses a repository to compile field data collected by students.
We develop and maintain an array of online services that support the academic and administrative functions of the University, such as facility booking systems, discussion forums, technology Wikis, issue trackers, and time management systems.
