Title

Mobile Data Collection using the Ohmage Platform for Instruction

Abstract

Participatory Sensing (PS) is a distributed data collection and analysis approach where individuals, acting alone or in groups, use their personal mobile devices to systematically explore interesting aspects of their lives and communities. Ohmage (http://ohmage.org) is a modular and extensible open-source, mobile to web participatory sensing platform that records, stores, analyzes, and visualizes data from both prompted self-report and continuous data streams. These data streams are authorable and can be dynamically deployed in diverse settings. Ohmage has been used as an enabling platform in over 20 independent projects in many disciplines. In this talk, we present the ohmage architecture and how it has been applied to provide an innovative teaching and learning environment for LA Unified School District under the NSF-funded Mobilize Project (mobilizingcs.org).
