MU IE Lab Works With Colleagues at IE Lab Tamkang University


Last month a group from SISLT visited Tamkang University (TKU) in Danshui, Taiwan and conducted a series of workshops for faculty and graduate students associated with the IE Lab nearing completion there. SISLT R & D Manager Gary Westergren planned and then coordinated the visit in Taiwan Sept 12 – 19. Drs. Joi Moore and Oliver Chen at TKU and Dr. Sanda Erdelez, via videoconference, presented the theoretical background of usability research as well as in-depth information on setting up and conducting an actual usability study. During the workshops, TKU faculty and graduate students collected actual data on the Tamkang University Chueh-Sheng Memorial Library Website, the first project for the IE Lab TKU. On Sept 18, results of the study were presented to Dr. Hong-Chu Huang, Director of the Chueh-Sheng Memorial Library and her staff. Recommendations on how to improve the functionality of the website during a planned redesign of the website were also outlined.
