PoliBook

Roberto Tedesco

PoliBook emulates a paper book, on a Windows 8 tablet, permitting students to add notes and sheets. The application provides different views:

  • Opened book: two pages are shown on the display
  • Two opened books: two books are opened, and one page per book is shown; the two books are navigable independently
  • Book plus notebook: one page of the opened book is shown, side-by-side with a page of the notebook associated to the current book; book and notebook are navigable independently

The user can:

  • Navigate the book (by page turning, TOC, etc.)
  • Annotate book pages, using a stylus
  • Add sheets with notes “inside” the book

Designed and developed by:
Gert Petja, Licia Sbattella, Roberto Tedesco
