    55The University of Massachusetts has already set up a GCRS (Global Context Resolution Service) server [http://umassmobilityfirst.net/GCRS/help here]. We are currently using their server to handle registering entities and groups and obtaining corresponding GUIDs.

     7We decided to work with the Android platform since many phones today run on Android, and as we know, smart phones are great sensor devices. One of the goals of this project is to create an API which app developers can use to integrate predefined or newly defined contexts to uniquely enhance their application.

     9As for our own application, we have decided to create a Classroom Aid app that is aimed to replace the existing "iClicker" widely used at Universities. iClicker has already ported their functionality to mobile devices however, their application is still merely for multiple-choice responses. Our app is intended to use context aware group messaging to greatly improve the classroom aid.

     11Our app will have all sorts of cool and useful things such as: 
     12-long response 
     13-content distribution 
     14-attendance checking based on location 
     15-location based on gps/radio/bluetooth proximity to others (when inside...where there won't be gps signal)
