This category is sponsored by the office of the CTO at Georgia Tech, and is focused on applications, widgets, and services which provide value to the Georgia Tech community. Successful entries in this category will have client capabilities exposed in GTmob, Argon, and/or Zimbra, and will leverage a variety of campus specific data sources and services as well as services in the cloud such as social networks, search, and maps, and location information.
The following is a list of desired applications or platform improvements which we would like to see addressed by the submissions in this category.
- Restaurant Finder: Use information about restaurant buzzcard transactions from on-campus restaurants to display line lengths at locations nearby and advice on the best places to eat quickly.
- GT Social: Support full interaction with GT Social (currently uses WordPress), which is a blog-type service where GT students can share links, opinions, discussions, and more. This application should have integration with popular social networking sites, and should be available in both GTmob and Argon. It should also provide an API which other GTmob developers can use to integrate aspects of GT Social into their applications.
- Marketplace widget: Create a widget that would facilitate selling and trading of books and other items on campus
- Zimlet integration with GTmob: Create a zimlet container which allows GTmob apps to run in the Zimbra environment. Also create a set of GTmob API's for access to Zimbra by GTmob applications running on any platform.
- Mobile T-Square: Support basic T-square functionality associated with mobile use by students and faculty, including assignments, submissions, resources, and other foundational elements within T-square.
- Clicker: Implement a Personal Response System (AKA: Clicker) application in GTmob and Zimbra, which allows students to perform basic interaction consistent with the common uses of the existing Clicker solution. This Application should be location aware, and should have the ability to restrict activity during class times to those located close to classrooms.
- CULC Kiosk - Room Availability: display room availability on an interactive touch screen display. This should include the ability to interact with and explore the space, as well as searching by and exploring the capabilities of each room. Optional support for room reservation within the application is also desirable so long as user identification is not required and building polices covering room reservations can be obeyed.
- CULC Kiosk - In Building Navigation: display information on an interactive touch screen display that allows users to interact with and explore the space, including walking paths between locations within the building.
- CULC Kiosk - Campus Navigation: display information on an interactive touch screen display that allows users to interact with and explore potential paths between buildings on campus. This should include options for both busses/trollies as well as walk-paths, including appropriate building entrances.
