Bass Glass project calls for applications

As part of a collaboration between the Yale University Library, the Student Technology Collaborative, and the Instructional Technology Group, the Bass Glass project is making Google Glass available to Yale faculty, students, and staff for both long-term and short-term projects. The Bass Glass project is now accepting applications for summer and fall term projects using the Google Glass device. The application can be accessed at: http://bassglass.commons.yale.edu/.

The Bass Glass project acquired its first Google Glass device in January of 2014 as part of the Glass Explorers program. Based on the overwhelming interest from Yale faculty, students and staff, two additional devices were added to the project during its initial spring trial period, making it possible to support multiple projects and development work simultaneously.

Applications are being accepted now, with a summer deadline for project proposals of May 29th and for fall projects, August 1st. The proposals can be written for either short-term (a maximum of two weeks) or long-term (half semester) use. The Bass Glass project is looking for proposals which will explore the unique potential of Google Glass and its application to education and the research experience. Examples of projects include augmented reality applications and geocoding, adaptive technologies for the disabled, and first-person immersive audio/visual narratives.

Check back in periodically to learn about the exciting projects being done with Google Glass at Yale this summer and next fall!
