Abstract

Ball State University's Digital Middletown Project (DMP) was designed to establish an advanced technology infrastructure with very high capacity broadband access to schools and surrounding communities that can be used to demonstrate the development and deployment of advanced rich new media for educational and entertainment purposes. This platform served to support the development of models for a more effective delivery of media content and establish Ball State University as a leader in the production and distribution of rich new media. DMP not only accomplished all the goals in evaluation of the impact of high bandwidth wireless connection and rich media in education and entertainment, but also created a new office with a spin-off business company. In addition, the project established new models for university business spin-offs that provide new revenue streams and business value to the institution through collaborations with a variety of leading companies in public and private partnerships.
