Collaboration with the Humanist Computer Interaction Project

CORE Admin

LAB1100 has established a collaboration with the project "Humanist Computer Interaction under Scrutiny" that runs from 2017 until 2020 at the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz (JGU), the Mainz University of Applied Sciences (Hochschule Mainz), and the Darmstadt University of Technology (Technische Universität Darmstadt).

The project aims to analyse how various digital methods affect scholarly workflows. By doing this, the project will be able to assess which factors encourage or deter scholars from using digital methods and tools in their everyday work. The project will gather data on these questions by using live observations, expert interviews, eye tracking, (retrospective) think-alouds and cognitive walkthroughs. Data will be gathered during workshops organised at various locations in Europe.

The web-based research environment nodegoat, developed by LAB1100, is one of the tools that is used at these workshops.

More information about the project can be found on the project website.
