The work of my MA research involved the creation of a research tool called "Nodes". The project was intended for designers to visually organise, create, and annotate digital content. By doing so users could develop richer conceptual relationships that they might share with their community of peers within the platform.
I've developed an understanding on how this group of users research through a focus group, surveys and research on the subject. Many aspects of today's web emerged from that, such as microlearning, information overload and the process of social knowledge building. Here is a conceptual model of knowledge building within the platform.
I have created a prototype for a platform that would help users create, understand and share information. During the couse of my MA I've also learned project management skills and presentation skills.
