1. Fingerspelling – Indian Sign Language Training Tool

Developed a Python-based application to help the hearing impaired learn Indian Sign Language (ISL) by working in a team of software engineering students, under the guidance of two Senior Research Scientists at IIT Bombay.

Description: In India, about 12.3 million people are hearing impaired (moderate or complete). Indian Sign Language (ISL) which is developed specifically for Indians is taught in over 850 schools where few teachers have the task of training large class. Primary challenge is to have parity in terms of teaching ISL to entire class. Additionally, it is difficult to identify their mistakes and provide personalized corrective feedback. Fingerspelling is a gesture based animation app for teaching ISL. Fingerspelling consists of ‘Learn’ module: which demonstrates the ISL gestures; Practice module: which provides opportunity to the users to practice; and Test module: which checks the knowledge assimilation of the gestures. This app is built using free and open source tool: Blender. It has a desktop version and a web based version. Our preliminary user tests reveal that the hearing impaired students find this app extremely useful and friendly to use. They were pleasantly surprised to interact with an app which can speak ‘their’ language. We propose to address the technical issues and modify the app to train the hearing impaired in a better and more efficient manner.

2. ArchViz: Incorporating Project Based Learning in a MOOC Setting Through Learning eXtension Trajectories

Built a VR application by using Project Based Learning (PBL) and published the benefits of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).

Description: In a Massive Open Online Course setting, the application of Project-Based Learning (PBL) strategy becomes challenging due to the asynchronous nature of the learning process as well as the high diversity among learners. One possible solution is to support the learner diversity by identifying different learning paths possible and pointing learners towards these. ‘Learning extension Trajectories’ (LxTs) from the Learner-Centric MOOC (LCM) model has an assimilation activity to ensure that learning loop gets closed for the learner. The assimilation activity can be provided in the form of quizzes, learning artefact submission or any similar activity that will indicate learner movement through the pointed learning trajectory. In this paper, we present different trajectories provided by the instructor of a 3D animation skill development MOOC. We also focus on a project, where the product is a methodology to create an interactive architectural visualization. Preliminary user tests reveal that the users find the intervention useful.
