SALL: Specifying a system to Support Academics' Lifelong Learning

Abstract : This project focuses on the specification of a system to support academics during the lifelong learning process. The initial data collection involved conducting interviews and a survey amongst academics from several disciplines. The collected data was combined with learning theories to reveal the ways in which technology could support academics. Subsequently, the needs that would be addressed by the proposed system were considered. Accordingly, the guided metaphor of the system was decided to be the Symposium. Symposiums are interrelated with learning, support formal and informal interactions and produce familiar mental models. This metaphor guided the design space mapping and facilitated the design rationale. The system's specification was stated by the interaction design based on HCI guidelines. Thus, the interface was designed by gaining continuous feedback from potential users with expertise in HCI (formative evaluation). At the end a final evaluation of the interface design was also conducted in order to reveal the weaknesses and strengths of the proposed system as well as to highlight future improvements.
