The Project

A multimedia collaboration room (MCRoom, or SMC after its initials in Spanish) is a physical workspace endowed with large interactive displays, videoconference equipment, video players and high-fidelity audio, wireless networking and reconfigurable furniture that enable diverse styles of group activities.

MCRooms may be used to support significant learning based on interactive experience, in scenarios where participants experiment and interact among each other or with resources designed specifically to benefit from the confluence of diverse technologies.

In order to realize these scenarios of advanced uses of MCRooms, we set out to develop methodologies, work groups, tools and applications to facilitate the construction of interactive resources, as well as to provide timely access to large collections and digital services, and to explore various learning strategies and collaboration styles among local and remote participants.

This project, termed “Multimedia Collaborative Classrooms extended via the Internet 2” (SMC-I2, addresses the aforementioned challenges by joining efforts, resources and experience of researchers from institutions that belong to CUDI (Universitary Corporation for the Internet Development).


The initial participant institutions of SMCi2 are:

  • Universidad de las Américas Puebla (UDLA)
  • Universidad de Guadalajara (UDG)
  • Universidad Veracruzana (UV)
