Not only do learners expect to be serviced based on all available context, a lot of that context is also interesting for the institution to improve their setup (e.g. usage of specific learning spaces). We invite you to come up with ways to use location data to improve the experience for end users .

How to prepare for the challenge?

We will provide several data sets, in collaboration with Cisco, and/or services providing the location of several devices in a building. A demo setup of Meraki applicances will provide location data of all devices within (part of, for the demo) the building (based upon Wifi). It will be a great opportunity to play around with this kind of data!

Why is it important to find a solution to this challenge?

The prototypes, insights or solutions that are the result of this event will be used in the further ICT and infrastructural technical planning with regards to the construction of a new campus building.

What is the possible impact of a good solution?

Enabling policy makers and offices for ICT and infrastructure to tailor the learning spaces towards the needs of the learners and lecturers and gaining a more in-depth understanding about how learning spaces are being used.

What is the expected outcome of this challenge?

We invite you to come up with ways to use this data to improve the experience for end users or institutions, to invent new ways of monitoring location or even to elaborate on the privacy sensitive side of this matter. These insights will enable us to change and improve the way learning spaces are currently being used.
