  • In 2017 - 2018, IE Lab worked with the Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI) and conducted a study for RJI Fellow, Linda Austin, Project Director for NewsTrain. The main purpose of this project was to explore technical systems for microlearning and specifically provide design recommendations for mobile microlearning applications for journalists.
  • On October 26, 2017, IE Lab researchers provided a presentation on how to conduct usability studies for the LeXMizzou student teams. The presentation included two parts: a presentation of some fundamentals of usability/UX study (presented by IE Lab manager Neeley Current and researcher Hao He), and a working session that helped teams develop their usability plan (hosted by IE Lab researcher Minh Pham).
  • In 2017, the IE Lab conducted a Comparative Systems Review for RJI Fellow, Dr. Michelle Ferrier, Associate Professor, Scripps College of Communication, Ohio University. The overall goal of the study was to assess whether a current system(s) exists that may support the learning, community, and social needs of the Media Innovation Space tool under development by Dr. Ferrier.
