Wireless technology provides ubiquitous connection in a
concentrated area.  When wireless network is  established
for  a  campus,  teachers and students can  enjoy  closer
interactions  and  better access to knowledge  resources.
Not  only  students will feel more open  and  comfortable
when they ask questions through wireless connections with
the  teachers,  but also teachers can interact  with  the
students more privately and directly, thus creating  more
personal  relationship between teachers and students  and
improving  the  quality  of  education.   This   close-up
interactive  environment  is hard  to  be  provided  with
clumsy  desk-top computers in a classroom setting,  where
such a classroom would have to be carefully furnished and
wired,  thereby  lowering the density of participants  in
the room.

Wireless campus also allows teachers and students to stay
in  touch with education material.  They can conveniently
access  the  library,  check  their  e-mails,  chat  with
others,  search information on the Internet, and retrieve
or  review education material. Combining with thin-client
devices, the wireless campus is an effective way  for  IT
ownership  in  schools with much reduced  cost,  compared
with   wired   campus.   Furthermore,   wireless   campus
encourages  portability, connectivity, and  communication
efficiency.    The  deployed  network  is  scalable   and

There are three objectives in this project:

1. Provide Wireless Technology and Architectural Evaluation

This objective calls for investigation on the cutting edge 
technologies in wireless and thin-client equipment,and the 
forecast of what would be available in the near future for the 
best performance and price consideration.

2. Develop Software and System Infrastructure

We plan to design an overall wireless campus architecture, 
including the acquisition of wireless and thin-client devices, 
the number of required components, and their hierarchical 
distribution and appropriate layout structure. We will also 
develop software infrastructure for teaching and learning in 
wireless networks. This infrastructure includes software
components for (i) lecture presentation and student/teacher communication, (ii) graphical user interface design,
(iii) multimedia applications for information searching and 
contents retrieval.

3. Create Wireless Quality Education Service and Content

This objective focuses on the development of courseware for 
wireless setting.  The developed courseware will emphasise 
high interaction and user-friendly multimedia contents.  It will 
also develop wireless-based testing mechanism.  Students 
can perform test in the wireless environment, and testing 
questions can be dynamically adjusted according to students' 
learning progress and capabilities.
