eLL’s research is primarily directed towards qualifying people working with ICT to be able to assess, design, and implement ICT systems that are based on the users’ practice, that give the users the possibility to function as co-designers, and that are adapted dynamically according to the situation. The goal of users as co-creators demands innovative and user-involving methods. More important, however, is the acquisition of a shared understanding and a shared design language with the users. The researchers from eLL contribute with theories, tools and techniques for creating collaboration, learning, and critical reflection in regards to design and innovation of ICT systems.
eLL’s research is organized mainly into six speciality areas:
- ICT in practice
- Design Methods
- Interaction Design and Information Architecture
- Health Informatics
- Network-based learning
- ICT for Development
In VBN is an overview of eLL research projects.
