Wi' gleesome touch!

Over the summer of 2010 we conducted an evaluation study of touchscreen installation prototypes for the new Robert Burns Birthplace museum in Ayrshire. Our research informed the design of the final systems and is funded by the National Trust Scotland.

The target audience for the museum are British young families and so-called 'empty-nesters' and we solicited study participants from this demographic to participate in the evaluation sessions as a group.

Eva and Mark are PIs, and Strathclyde PhD student Emma Nicol joined us in running the studies. We returned to the museum in spring 2011 to study the final systems in use by visitors.
