Web Design and the Future of Reading
(Fall 2012 & Winter 2013)
This research group is concerned with the ways in which extended text can be displayed on websites for consumption on a variety of digital devices. The goal is to better understand how various designs influence reading habits, and how we can design to encourage extended reading.
This research group will continue through Winter Quarter (2013). This will enable several of the current members to complete their projects. Also, the research group is open to interested students who want to define a small project to carry out during Winter Quarter. I can work with folks to define these projects. To accommodate people with full-time work schedules, this research group will be offered on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 pm in Sieg Hall. We will also communicate between meetings using GoPost. You can register for 2–4 credits (graded cr/no cr) in HCDE 596 (for graduate students) or HCDE
496 (for undergraduate students). Intermediate-level skills with HTML/CSS are necessary.
