A cutting-edge facility, IDEALL serves as a blank-slate data collection environment, providing the infrastructure for fine-grained research on learning with emerging technologies.


  • Enables scholars to study learner interactions with digital technologies in real-time.
  • Allows investigators to create technology-enhanced learning environments, and research their impact on student learning.
  • Collects and stores massive and varied data about learner-technology interactions, including movements and discourse.

The IDEALL is a College of Education facility. We invite use from campus researchers as well as by other academic and industrial users.
