DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
FlipMe Online Learning Companion

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Online Learning Companion

INSPIRATION:
Millions of people around the world now use online learning as a convenient and inexpensive alternative to classroom based education. Despite these advantages, online courses suffer from high dropout rates. Prior research into online learning suggested limited opportunities for social interaction between students may contribute to these high dropout rates. In order to address this challenge we present FlipMe, an Internet of Things, IoT, companion augmenting peer to peer interaction through a tangible interface in real time.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
FlipMe is an IoT, Internet of Things, companion that aims to augment peer to peer interaction in real time for more active and interactive online learning. Through a user validation study, we observed that FlipMe's tangible interfaces and embodied feedback, such as flipping book metaphor, promoted interaction between paired peers during online learning activities over distance. Thus FlipMe's unique approach promotes enriched communication for students compared to conventional online learning services providing textual information, for instance, through a discussion board.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
FlipMe physicalizes peer’s learning activities. A flipping top provides real-time feedback through a reading a book like motion, triggered by a paired peer’s viewing of video content. Group study activities are expressed through a rolling ball feedback. A rotatable handle provides a nudging function for peer to peer interaction. Thus FlipMe conveys information between peers through a more memorable and intuitive design approach compared with traditional screen-based interfaces associated with online learning, with their limitations of conventional interactions through keyboard or mouse.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project begun in March 2018 and finished in February 2019. The project was conducted at UNIST, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, Republic of Korea.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We utilized different fabrication techniques ranged from 3D printing to computer numerical control, CNC, for high fidelity prototype that aims to approximate, in detail, aesthetic and functional characteristics. Firstly, Ash was selected to provide the natural beauty of grain. In order to prevent breakage during CNC machining, a minimum thickness was kept in 6mm. While machining, grooves were made for a peripheral design where the electronic parts such as motors were inserted. In addition, a neodymium magnet with a diameter of 8mm was used to provide information of progress of the common goal to the front side of the body. In order to implement the movement of the ball type magnet, two gears with a ratio of 1 to 1 and diameter of 32mm were laser cut and plugged in at 180 degrees to a servo motor. As the servomotor starts to turn, the plugged gear transmits rotation to a second gear installed with the plate on the backside of the circular embossing area. To design the flipping card mechanism, 1mm polycarbonate sheet was selected and cut. Mat red finish was applied. A small aluminium needle was designed to hold and release the flipping card. In total, 48 finished cards were used to provide flipping feedback of peer’s learning activity. Finally, to rotate the cards, a timing belt and a pulley with 15 cogs was used as power-train from a step motor. The design of the handle includes a 360 degree rotary encoder module, or Grove Encoder, to sense the number of rotations and transmit to the microcontroller board, 511 Nucleo L432KC. This provided the same pattern and number of rotations to a paired FlipMe product.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
For the physical product: Width 100mm x Depth 100mm x Height 144mm, and the inclination is 86° so that the user can easily observe the main interfaces to the top and at the front. In terms mobile application design: The portrait view is 1125x2436 px and the landscape view is 2436x1125 px which are considered the latest model of iPhone.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
1. Type: An in-lab study 2. Objectives: To evaluate FlipMe’s potential to stimulate peer to peer communication when engaging online video content. 3. Method: Entry question, video observation and open discussion session between participants and a final retrospective interview. 4. Data Collection: Quantitative data logged onto an internet server, together with transcribed interview responses and video recordings. 5. Participants: 8 females and 14 males with an age range of 22 to 32 years old. 6. Insights: Tangible interfaces showed the potential to encourage more active engagement in peer learning activities during online learning when viewing video contents.

CHALLENGE:
We had a challenge to implement real time parallel control between two products for paired peers unlike the usual IoT devices which communicate unidirectionally. Consequently, we had a lack of the user study duration, thus the long-term, ethnographic deployment study in users' real lives was not conduct. Future planned in the wild studies will provide a more contextualized understanding of FlipMe’s potential for fostering communication within online learning spaces.

NAME:
Ulsan national institute of science and technology

PROFILE:
Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, simply referred to as UNIST, is one of the four public universities in South Korea which are dedicated to research in science and technology, along with KAIST, GIST, and DGIST. UNIST was founded in 2007 in response to growing demand for higher education in the Korean industrial capital of Ulsan, where world-renowned automotive (Hyundai Motor), shipbuilding (Hyundai Heavy Industries), petrochemical (SK Energy), and secondary cells industries are clustered. At the time of its foundation, UNIST was known for being the first national university in South Korea to be incorporated and thus administered by an independent board of trustees despite being funded by the central government. UNIST has the vision of becoming a world-leader in the advancement of science and technology for the prosperity of humankind. With strong support from central and local governments, UNIST aims to develop at least 10 competitive areas of research with the goal of being ranked top 10 globally by the year 2030.The strategies for reaching this goal include creative, interdisciplinary and global education and research.
