Since his PhD years, Thimoty actively researched the area of collaborative learning and training (CSCL / CSCW), and the area of Assistive Technologies for impaired users. Using 3D interactive environments, Thimoty realized prototypes for interactive virtual museums and classrooms which have been the basis of several international experiments (the Virtual Leonardo Museum Project, Best of Web 2000 prize at Museums&Web 2000, Seattle, USA; the Dead Sea Scrolls Museum Project, implementing a virtual visit in Qumran for schools; the Learning@Europe Project; articles appeared on the New York Times and on Sun Microsystem’s Journal on the Web). The main stream of Thimoty’s research, however, has been and is nowadays Assistive Technologies applied to e-Learning and Education. Thimoty has designed and implemented a complete e-Learning platform for sensorially and cognitively impaired learners (the MultiAbile project, financed in 2004 by the Region of Lombardy, www.multiabile.it). Thimoty has recently patented a device and a method to allow blind users to explore bidimensional images in the web, and he is currently researching, together with Milan’s Institute of the Blind, applications of this method in schools for teaching geography and mathematics. He is now also collaborating with the Italian Association of Dyslexia to study and create computer tools to aid students with dyslexia at school; and with the Esagramma Center for Mental Retardation to study the impact of computer educational tools on students with mental retardation. His work with assistive technology has been recognized and endorsed by the UNESCO Institute of Information Technology for People With Special Needs, based in Moscow, Russia.
