The IE Lab members are presenting at the HCI International 2013 in Las Vegas on July 24-26, 2013. The paper reports on the differences in the usability problems of electronic visit systems experienced by different user groups, i.e., physicians, nurses, and patients. The poster showcases the findings on persuasive features in a web-based system for weight-loss team competition. Both projects were conducted in the IE lab as part of the client work.

The IE Lab is conducting usability evaluations for the Faculty Reporting System of College of Education. This study consists of a user study as well as a user survey. The survey is a convenient way to walk faculty through the system and get their opinions on usability of the system. It also gives the user a way to give suggestions of improvement. This is the first time that we use survey to collect user feedback for usability.
Several IE Lab members will be traveling to Springfield, MO to meet with potential IE Lab clients, demo the work IE Lab does, and establish new professional relationship.
The whole point of human-centered design is to tame complexity, to turn what would appear to be a complicated tool into one that fits the task, that is understandable, usable, enjoyable.
