Constellations: A participatory, online application for research collaboration in higher education interdisciplinary courses

"The research establishes a model for online learning centering on the needs of integrative knowledge practices. Through the metaphor of Constellations, the practice-based research explores the complexities of working within interdisciplinary learning contexts and the potential of tools such as the Folksonomy learning platform for providing necessary conceptual support."

Josef Frank Exhibition: Against Design in Vienna

"The exhibition JOSEF FRANK: Against Design presents the full scope of Frank's pioneering and diverse oeuvre. In light of his prodigious output of furniture and textile designs that remain current to this day and his intensive involvement with the possibilities of architecture and living in the modern era, the title Against Design might at first seem a puzzling choice for an exhibition on Josef Frank. Frank, whose work as a designer and design critic continues to be considered contemporary today, represented a pragmatic approach to design and argued for a simple and 'normal'—but by no means normative—architecture and design. He believed that existing elements should be taken into account as a matter of course and intuitively developed for practical use, without striving toward representation and innovation. To Frank, it was not so much the formal qualities, but those of social experience that were important; his interiors and household objects were not intended to be subjected to formalist concepts, but placed at the service of convenience.

Especially today, Josef Frank's ideas about an uncontrived and unpretentious functionality, whose aim was an independent, free, enlightened bourgeois domestic culture far from stylistic dogmas and fashionable conventions, seem more relevant than ever."

Free-listing methods to explore user categorisations

"The assumption with semantic domains is that there is something common to people's understanding of that domain. Free–listing is a good way to explore that common understanding.There are two main questions in understanding a semantic domain. The first question is 'What are the contents of the domain, its scope, and its boundaries?' The second question is 'How are the contents structured?' Free–listing is a technique that can help you determine the scope of the domain while providing some insight into how the domain is structured.

Free–listing can be used to understand the contents of a domain. For example, a practitioner designing the information architecture for an online book vendor might need to generate a list of book genres and subgenres. Or the practitioner might already possess a list of genres, but need to verify that the list is exhaustive. Or the goal of free–listing might be to arrange the genres according to centrality or salience in the user's mind.

Free–listing can also serve as a way to gain familiarity with user vocabulary for the domain. As a precursor to cardsorting, it allows you to define and limit the domain in question, and frame card items in the user's own language. Apart from helping in all these situations, free–listing can also serve as a rough proxy for similarity methods, such as cardsorting.

Free–listing might seem similar to open–ended questions about subjective preferences, such as 'What cars do you like?,' but there is an important difference when free–listing is used to explore semantic domains. The assumption with semantic domains is that there is something common to people's understanding of that domain (i.e., user understanding is not completely idiosyncratic). Free–listing is a good way to explore that common understanding of the domain."

Search log analysis: What it is, what's been done, how to do it

"The use of data stored in transaction logs of Web search engines, Intranets, and Web sites can provide valuable insight into understanding the information–searching process of online searchers. This understanding can enlighten information system design, interface development, and devising the information architecture for content collections. This article presents a review and foundation for conducting Web search transaction log analysis. A methodology is outlined consisting of three stages, which are collection, preparation, and analysis. The three stages of the methodology are presented in detail with discussions of goals, metrics, and processes at each stage. Critical terms in transaction log analysis for Web searching are defined. The strengths and limitations of transaction log analysis as a research method are presented. An application to log client–side interactions that supplements transaction logs is reported on, and the application is made available for use by the research community. Suggestions are provided on ways to leverage the strengths of, while addressing the limitations of, transaction log analysis for Web–searching research. Finally, a complete flat text transaction log from a commercial search engine is available as supplementary material with this manuscript."
