About

LEARNMIX was an applied research project about the re-conceptualization of the e-Textbook in collaboration with the software development company NetGroup. The general goal of the project was to advance ubiquitous computing interaction design and evaluation approaches by understanding how humans interact with and through ecologies of artefacts when pursuing their activities. 

Outcomes

• An updated frame of reference to analyse ubiquitous interactions;
• The e-Textbook re-conceptualized as an aggregation of both professionally developed and user-contributed content, accessible through one’s range of artefacts;
• Pedagogical scenarios for the use of the re-conceptualized e-textbook;
• Guidelines for professional e-Textbook content development;
• A business model for the publishing and distribution of content;
• The technological infrastructure enabling the foreseen e-Textbook.
