Title SimPad - a drawing-based modeling tablet web application to support science education
Author(s) Olsson, Axel
Date 2013
English abstract
With the increase of use with tablet computers comes new ways of interaction but also new possibilities for learning. This creates a challenge for designers to create a viable interaction design. In this research, a set of interaction design guidelines and interaction qualities are identi ed. Speci cally when designing natural user interfaces for drawing-based modeling on tablet devices to support learning. The existing tablet computer manufacturer design guidelines are reviewed. Additionally, a webbased tablet prototype designed and developed using an iterative design approach consisting of design and creation coupled with design-based research and interaction design. The prototype is evaluated with eight representative end-users at a middleschool in southern Sweden using a usability evaluation that is recorded with video and analyzed through a signi cant event analysis. The results show that users enjoy working with the prototype and they think that it can help them in their learning. The results also shows guidelines and a ordances for interaction design of interfaces for drawing-based modeling tablet applications. The reasoning behind identifying guidelines and a ordances is to provide researchers, designers, and others with the means to minimize problems that may arise in the design of their own drawing-based modeling tools for education.
