UQ Smart Campus Project, Internet of Things (IoT) technology, problem-based learning modules


The project described in this paper builds on exciting technological developments in real time biophysical data gathering that are currently happening at The University of Queensland (UQ)’s regional campus (UQGatton ~1000ha of prime agricultural land ~85km SW of Brisbane in SE Queensland), via the Internet of Things (IoT) UQ Smart Campus Project. This paper will describe the development of multifaceted web-based interfaces, problem based learning modules, and 3D modelling using the real time streaming data acquired through the Internet of Things (IoT) technology of the UQGatton Smart Campus Initiative. The idea is to produce innovative teaching and assessment modules for multiple different courses in the UQ Science Faculty, and across 2 Campuses separated by 85kms of highway. The paper describes the technology involved, the challenges and workarounds and a number of examples of using the data collected for problem-based learning modules. Some discussion is included on what these technologies could provide for further Teaching & Learning developments in the “E” space being trialed with partners UQ ITS, Microsoft and Telstra/Readify.
