Google opens code for building interactive experiences in physical spaces

Google opens code for building interactive experiences in physical spaces | Remote Access Labs for Engineering Education | Scoop.it

The framework, which is called Interactive Spaces, is distributed under the permissive Apache license and is available for download from a Mercurial repository hosted on Google Code. The search giant announced the new framework in a post on its official open source software blog.

Interactive Spaces is implemented primarily in Java, but it has a scripting bridge that supports JavaScript and Python. The framework provides a high-level architecture for building "activities" that respond to events in a room..

Very useful blog

Mahdi M Disfani's comment, January 24, 2013 9:01 PM
Thanks Pira! The article points out two big obstacles in engineering on-line courses: 1- Professional Accreditation Agencies belief that engineering is a Hands-on course and 2- high costs of virtual labs (I think the second obstacles have been resolved to some extents, by creating virtual laboratories by several universities and sharing them).
