This research project is a MSCHI 2nd year Masters project that attempts to design a wearable device that will reduce distraction in classrooms by making it easier for professors to deal with technology issues that may occur (e.x. The wifi cutting out) in a way that will help them maintain focus on the subject matter of the class.
Students in Georgia Tech's interdisciplinary MS in Human-Computer Interaction program do multiple group class projects, and a capstone individual project. Some projects are presented as part of other labs listed here; others are showcased in the MS-HCI Project Lab.
The two-year program spans four schools: Industrial Design; Interactive Computing; Literature, Media and Communications (Digital Media Program); and Psychology. Approximately 50 new students enroll each fall semester.
