Project Spotlight

OpenGrounds Virtual Network

The OpenGrounds Virtual Network will be a demonstration of the capacity of technology to connect people in new ways. Through an OpenGrounds Challenge, students will propose ideas for the web and mobile interface for the Network. A team of students will work with an advisor to develop the platform based on the winning ideas, providing unique, hands-on research and learning experience for students interested in sound design, computer science, and communication. Funding from the Trust will support the student dimension of this new program, by providing seed funding for Student Interns to record, edit, and post the events to the network; an OpenGrounds Challenge to develop the webpage and mobile app through which content will be accessible; and a summer project for students to work with an advisor to build the winning idea.
