Kinect for Windows offers an engaging and interactive approach to learning that completes the experience of teachers and students using Office 365 for Education._x000D_ By showcasing the principles of developing applications for Kinect, and specifically integrating the Kinect experience with Office 365 for Education, this session will describe how to introduce gesture-based interactions and voice recognition as part of a class program in a school. This real case study, accompanied by plenty of code and examples, focuses on creating a quiz engine for Office 365 for Education, which uses the Kinect sensor for 'gamifying' the test session in a class, by recognising specific gesture and voice for identifying the correct answer._x000D_ The engine is built with expandability in mind, allowing teachers to create bespoke quizzes with no coding. And to go even further, a 'Quiz SDK' exists for developers for developing custom extensions to the quiz engine._x000D_ Let's put it all together for an exciting learning experience: a web-based learning platform based on Office 365 for Education, Kinect for Windows for interacting with students and make learning fun, and an extensible quiz engine for developing interactive tests that recognize gesture and voice.
