Thesis Update

Aiming to be finished this Thursday with the paper, presentation and working prototype.

Changed the name from iPhone Classroom to Pocket Classroom.
Now the “official” project web site is www.pocketlearning.org
The paper now has images and is all formatted in Word so posting in PDF from now on. Click HERE for the document. 
And a video of the iPhone application’s new version. 
Finally, I am also working on the “class creation” tool:
Still need to tie them together and add editing features but for the most part it is functional (reads and writes to the database and so on). 

iPhone Dev Bar Camp

This Saturday I participated in a Bar Camp – iPhoneDevCampNYC – at the Polytechnic University in Brooklyn which ran from 10 am to 6pm. 

It follows the open source mentality where there was no fixed schedule or preset presentations. Whoever felt like they had something to contribute to the group would lead an hour long session. 
We had 5 different rooms we could use at the same time and about 30 people to attend. 
I ended up leading two sections, one in iPhone Web Apps – customizing a web page to take advantage of some of the iPhone’s features – and another session on using the iPhone’s camera within your iPhone application – something I figured out how to implement, but had more questions than answers. 
Overall it was a great event where I met several interesting people sharing the same enthusiasm about the iPhone and this new gold rush that is happening around it in the development community. 
Here are a few pictures:

iPhone Classroom

Here is the first video of the iPhone Classroom as a native iPhone Application – in other words – this is not a web page – this is a real iPhone application developed with the iPhone SDK and so on…
I used some web content here to make it easier to create new lessons – no need to recompile or reinstall the application to have the latest list of lessons and their content:
