My role at the Open University is associated with understanding how people learn using complex media (traditional and digital) and how best to design those media to support learning, through 'media integration'. My research can best be described as Deep HCI: where the people are at the heart of the enterprise, and understanding them as they use complex media is the key objective. This involves much more than examining usability, interface design or tool use. It entails an examination of all the factors that influence a person's approach to learning, and all the factors that can impact upon their success.My role at the Open University is associated with understanding how people learn using complex media (traditional and digital) and how best to design those media to support learning, through 'media integration'.
