Midtown Buzz is an experiment in mobile innovation focused on engaging urban communities. It includes mobile platform and app development, open-source data curation, contextually aware environments, social navigation, developer workshops, hackathons, trials, needs assessments and the creation of a Live-Work-Play Laboratory for exploring the potential of media technologies in creating a climate for innovation.

Prior research has produced mixed results regarding the usefulness of interactivity in multimedia learning. In this study, participants learned to solve part of a Rubik's Cube using either a tutorial with interactive features or a passive (video-based) tutorial. Participants with low spatial ability benefited more from interactivity than those with high ability, though no performance main effects were found between the tutorials. Targeted use of interactivity could be effective in engaging students and help them learn.
