Project Summary:

This project will create an interactive academic program design website to build SUNY-wide strategic direction in programmatic offerings, while bolstering campus constituents’ knowledge, skills and confidence in design, implementation, and sustainability of new initiatives to meet higher educational demands of the 21st century.

Project Outcome:

This project planned an interactive web-based portal to house innovation projects across SUNY. As a result, existing projects that impact access will be more accessible to others for expanding capabilities, dissemination and scaling. We have also been accepted as a Tier 3 IITG project for 2018-19 to implement the plans for an interactive portal and open resource repository on innovative projects across SUNY: Academic Sharing Community: A SUNY Catalog of Educational Projects and Innovative Initiatives (ASC SUNY). This should provide us with the ability to take the plans into a scalable project. Ongoing support of the project still needs to be determined.

Project Summary:

Assists students in designing and developing intuitive, multi-touch universal apps for iOS and Android platforms - for application both in-class and online environments.

Project Outcome:

In addition to a new website, Dr. Purwar has created 1) a universal mechanism design application (app) for Apple's iOS and Google's Android platform, and 2) a new Freshman Design Innovation class, which is being offered for the first time at Stony Brook in the Fall 2015.

The motiongen app is now available for download from the Google Play store. It has been submitted for approval to the Apple itunes store. We also created a support site for the app.
The support site has video tutorials on how to use the app.
