The Design and Evaluation of Wide-Area Network Navigators for Education

Project Award Date: 0000-00-00



Description

The UNITE project is a research and development effort to establish an on time and user friendly means of delivering a full range of information resources to educators and students. The University of Kansas is developing a multimedia client called the Explorer as well as network server software which will allow teachers to search multimedia databases using browsing and text searching strategies. The goal of the project is to establish a user interface that is easy for teachers and students to use and one that is consistent with a variety of teaching styles. This is an evolving design process that benefits from the involvement of teachers from 50 school districts.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
