Process:
The overall goal of the LeXMizzou project is to give students access to become game designers for learning. Students design, develop, and evaluate a location-based augmented reality mobile game around the campus of the University of Missouri-Columbia.

The LeXMizzou project started in September 2015 and ended December 2017. Throughout the entire project lifecycle, IE Lab continuously provided usability study support for the project, covering UX fundamentals, design lifecycle, instruments, tools, presentations and training on usability study.

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).
