The group works with interaction design within several domains, e.g. health, business, work life, public school, higher education, and development work.

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

DIGHUMLAB is a national, distributed research infrastructure that integrates and promotes digital resources, communities, tools and opportunities to Danish researchers in the humanities and social sciences, and also at European and international levels.

DIGHUMLAB’s mission is to contribute to skills development, internationalisation and innovation through a national focus on Digital Humanities in research, education and knowledge transfer. DIGHUMLAB is therefore based on networks and cooperation.

DIGHUMLAB is a national consortium of four Danish universities:  Aalborg University, Aarhus University, the University of Copenhagen and the University of Southern Denmark as well as the  State and University Library and the National Library of Denmark and Copenhagen University Library

The building sector is the sector that holds the largest potential for energy efficiency improvements today. UserTEC studies different groups of users’ everyday practices in regards to consumption of energy as well as their response to new building technologies. The goal is to become better at adapting new energy solutions to the users’ needs and thereby reaching the full effectivisation potential. eLL’s involvement in the UserTEC project revolves around the development of a design language that integrates intelligent domestic regulation technologies.

LARM-projektet udvikler en IT-infrastruktur, CHAOS, der giver adgang til at streame radioudsendelser fra DR og Statsbibliotekets arkiver.

CHAOS indeholder en række værktøjer til søgning, annotering m.v., som skal understøtte forskning og undervisning i relation til radioudsendelser og lyd.

LARM er et tværdisciplinært samarbejde mellem en række forsknings- og kulturinstitutioner. Forskere fra e-Learning Lab har bidraget til udviklingen af platformen, herunder metadataformatet samt medvirket til undersøgelse af brugernes praktiske anvendelse og interaktion med det digitale arkiv.
