Progress Report #2

We've now refined the interface for the audio slideshows and have started work on the PDF and HTML content of the site. Major progress on both already (faster than planned), and parts of the interaction are nicely polished already. The next goals are to start putting the overall content design in place, as much of the organisation of material on the desktop takes far too much screen space for mobile use!

Progress Report #1

We're making rapid progress on the first month's work. Sam Muscroft, our Research Assistant on the project, has implemented a first-cut version of the audio slideshow support for the app, which is possibly the most complex technological element of the project. At present, we're building for an iPad target device, but we will certainly manage to support the iPhone too, at a later date.

Sam's also managed to import the first parts of the current Learnmore site into the app, which Emily Allbon and Sanmeet Kaur sent us over. Some tweaking will need to be done to get all the information out of Adobe Presenter.

The students at City return this week, so sometime soon we should be able to start on the interaction design side of the project too.

Starting Off

Learnmore for Mobile is a JISC-funded project run at City University London. We're creating an infrastructure to deliver the valuable Learnmore resources for City University's law students on the go.

The project is being led by Dr. George Buchanan at the University's Centre for Human-Computer Interaction Design, in collaboration with colleagues Sanmeet Kaur Dua from the City Law School and Emily Allbon, the law subject librarian at City University's main library.
