    Increasing visibility of culture through online information services: The case of Småland2019In: Presented at iConference 2019: Inform, include, inspire. March 31 - April 3, Maryland, USA, 2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Cultural events are of increasing importance as value creators in our society. They can serve to promote the attractiveness of a region, to increase social interactions and the quality of life and, not the least, to boost local economies. Today, a comprehensive and up-to-date online overview of cultural events in Småland, a region in southeastern Sweden, is missing mainly due the fact that information is distributed across different actors, communication channels and different media (e.g. individual organizers, commercial vendors, community calendars, newspapers calendars).

    The ultimate purpose of our research is to significantly increase access to information and awareness of cultural attractiveness in Småland using innovative web technologies, both for its inhabitants as well as tourists. Reporting on the first stage of the project, this paper focuses on the exploration of requirements to design a mobile application and a website.

    First guidelines for the design of web and mobile interfaces have been in existence since the early 2000s (Weiss, 2003) and have been updated accordingly to reflect the evolution of technology and the evolution of web and mobile applications. In order to get users to use the application or website, they need to be simple, easy to understand, and present meaningful information to the user (Rubino et al., 2014).

    Functionalities for a cultural event app and/or website include those referring to general ones pertinent to any user-friendly app and specific ones related to information on cultural events. General major functionalities identified in the literature include:

    • Clear and concise way of displaying the content (Boiano et al., 2012);

    • Interactive and quick responding interfaces (ibid.);

    • An interface which is easy to understand with few controls (Gena et al., 2013);

    • The ability to share information, write reviews and connect, which in turn will make the application more visible for the general public (ibid.); and,

    • Utilising user-generated content (ratings, tags, comments, and so on) as a source of information about a user, and for adaptation and recommendation purposes (ibid.).

    Our methodological approach involved three major steps. First, an interview with cultural events providers, using contemporary art as a use case, was conducted in order to identify initial needs and requirements for building the two types of interfaces. The interviews were conducted with two representatives of a governmental institution promoting contemporary art in the region, called Nya Småland (in English New Småland, http://www.nyasmaland.se/9/). After the first round of interviews, initial mock-ups of the interfaces were built, followed by another round of interviews to gain insights and feedback on those designs. Themes in the interviews focused on requirements, functionalities, cultural event providers in the different regions and user groups. The interviewees said that it is generally important to make contemporary art galleries and their activities visible to a wider audience through a good-quality app and a web site. It is often hard to reach the public with cultural events; one reason could be lack of money for advertising. The information gathered from the interviews was then used when creating a new round of refined mock-ups.

    In conclusion, the interviewees consider a quality app and a website for cultural events on contemporary art an important way in which to increase visibility of cultural events in the region and beyond. In addition, preserving information about past events for future uses is considered important, especially for journalists, politicians and journalists. Future research efforts will focus on developing an interactive prototype and gain feedback from content providers and a range of potential end user groups.

    An Application for Speech and Language Therapy Using Customized Interaction Between Physical Objects and Mobile Devices2016In: Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Computers in Education / [ed] Chen, W. et al., India: Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education, 2016, p. 477-482Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a prototype that facilitates the work of Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs) by providing an Android mobile device application that allows the therapist to focus on the patient rather than taking notes during exercises.Each physical object used by the therapist in those exercises can be given digital properties using Near Field Communication (NFC) tags. The registration does not require a high level of ICT skills from the therapists. SLTs often use such objects in non-technology driven exercises that deal with classification, seriation and inclusion. The application offers such exercises developed in close collaboration with two SLTs, and our aim was to provide therapists with a way to efficiently record activities while working with a patient using a mobile application. The tool was validated through several expert reviews, a usability study as well as a trial with a patient in Paris, France.

    Using 360-degrees interactive videos inpatient trauma treatment education: design, development and evaluationaspects2018In: Smart Learning Environments, E-ISSN 2196-7091, Vol. 5, article id 26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Extremely catastrophic situations are rare in Sweden, which makes training opportunities important to ensure competence among emergency personnel who should be actively involved during such situations. There is a requirement to conceptualize, design, and implement an interactive learning environment that allows the education, training and assessment of these catastrophic situations more often, and in different environments, conditions and places. Therefore, to address these challenges, a prototype system has been designed and developed, containing immersive, interactive 360-degrees videos that are available via a web browser. The content of these videos includes situations such as simulated learning scenes of a trauma team working at the hospital emergency department. Various forms of interactive mechanisms are integrated within the videos, to which learners should respond and act upon. The prototype was tested during the fall term of 2017 with 17 students (working in groups), from a specialist nursing program, and four experts. The video recordings of these study sessions were analyzed and the outcomes are presented in this paper. Different group interaction patterns with the proposed tool were identified. Furthermore, new requirements for refining the 360-degrees interactive video, and the technical challenges associated with the production of this content, have been found during the study. The results of our evaluation indicate that the system can provide the students with novel interaction mechanisms, to improve their skills, and it can be used as a complementary tool for the teaching and learning methods currently used in their education process.

The initial outcomes of the evaluation indicate that the system can provide students with novel interaction mechanisms to improve their skills and it can be applied as a complementary tool to the methods used currently in their education.

    Visualizing learners’ navigation behaviour using 360 degrees interactive videos2019In: Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Web Information Systems and Technologies / [ed] Alessandro Bozzon, Francisco Domínguez Mayo & Joaquim Filipe, Vienna: SciTePress, 2019, Vol. 1, p. 358-364Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of 360-degrees interactive videos for educational purposes in the medical field has increased in recent years, as well as the use of virtual reality in general. Learner’s navigation behavior in 360-degrees interactive video learning environments has not been thoroughly explored yet. In this paper, a dataset of interactions generated by 80 students working in 16 groups while learning about patient trauma treatment using 360-degrees interactive videos is used to visualize learners’ navigation behavior. Three visualization approaches were designed and implemented for exploring users’ navigation paths and patterns of interaction with the learning materials are presented and discussed. The visualization tool was developed to explore the issues above and it provides a comprehensive overview of the navigation paths and patterns. A user study with four experts in the information visualization field has revealed the advantages and drawbacks of our solution. The paper concludes by providing some suggestions for improvements of the proposed visualizations.
