Chromecast Deployment Guide, Release 7.6

Chromecast is a digital media player developed by Google. The device, a HDMI dongle, plays audio/video content on a high-definition screen by directly streaming it via Wi-Fi from the Internet or a local network. Users select the media to play by using Chromecast enabled mobile/Web applications, or through a feature called “tab casting” that can mirror most Google Chrome browser content running on the device (MAC OSX and Windows). Chromecast uses a simple multicast protocol for Discovery And Launch that enables users to mirror their devices on a second screen.

The Chromecast devices operate on DIAL protocol. The clients that wishes to discover Chromecast servers send a request over UDP to IP address 239.255.255.250 and UDP port number 1900. Problem Statement The multicast address used by the Chromecast discovery packets has a TTL (Time To Live) set to 1. This document provides information on deploying Chromecast over large networks with single, as well as multiple VLANs.

The following is a rather long and scholarly type post arguing for the use of Networks in addition to groups commonly employed in formal campus and distance education.

Networks Versus Groups in Higher education

The essay will probably find its way into a published paper or book chapter, but I thought I would post it here in case anyone has interest and especially comments. Thanks TerryBlending Groups and Networks in Higher Education A pervasive ‘buzz’ in education these days relates to development of ‘blended learning” (Garrison & Kanuka, 2004) . In most cases the ‘blending’ refers to developing educational programs that employ an appropriate mix of face-to-face and online activities.

LifeNet: About LifeNet

Current options such as satellite communication are expensive and have limited functionality. A robust communication solution should be affordable, easy-to-deploy, require low-to-zero infrastructure, consume little power and facilitate Internet access. LifeNet is a WiFi-based data communication solution designed for post-disaster scenarios. It is open-source software and designed to run on consumer devices such as laptops, smart-phones and wireless routers.

Now how does all this work for an educational institution? Broadly speaking, it seems like a good idea to have a Facebook page for the school and to use it for public announcements.

Experts also believe that it is inadvisable for students to be allowed Facebook access while at school. The other issue that schools have to contend with in the context of Facebook is that students are sometimes posting things on this site which are problematic. Emmaüs Leeromgeving.
