Ayyoub Ajmi demonstrating Google Glass to a UMKC School of Law Student

In 2014, the UMKC School of Law joined the Google Glass Explorer Program in order to experiment and investigate how wearable technologies in general and Google Glass in particular can be used in education to improve teaching and learning experiences.

Among the use cases developed were: a walk-through video tour of the library, Google hangout with prospective students to tour the school and its facilities, students' practice interviews, and social events coverage. The results of this experiment have been published in The Computers in Libraries Magazine (April 2015).

Google Glass for the Educator: A Postmortem Separating the Reality From the Hype and Some Thoughts for Google is co-written with Michael Robak. Robak is the Associate Director of the UMKC Law Library and the Director of the UMKC Law School Information Technology.
