GVU Research Showcase Spring 2022

Featured Projects

Electronic sports, or esports, are not only an economic juggernaut but also an exciting domain to explore human-computer interactions and new business strategies. Team 1 of the Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) class focuses on the applications of mixed reality technologies to bring the excitement of esports anywhere through mobile technologies and simple sensors. This team works with industry partners including Ghost Gaming, Atlanta Reign, and Hi-Rez Studios to explore new business strategies and applications of mixed reality through user-centered designed applications.
This research explored the effect of intuitive versus rational thinking on creativity. Our objective was to investigate this relationship through design tasks with undergraduate industrial design students. Students performed nine separate design tasks across three conditions. Their work was scored for novelty and feasibility, and we analyzed this performance data in conjunction with self-reported mood and information processing assessments. Our results show numerous statistically significant differences.
Designing effective CSCW systems in healthcare requires a careful consideration of the entire enterprise. This study uses computational text analysis and network visualization of topical terms and keywords to map the extant knowledge domain of CSCW in healthcare. The results are framed using a multi-level enterprise model, comprised of people, technology, process, and organization. Emerging trends and prominent patterns are identified. The study contributes to a broader understanding of CSCW research in healthcare and demonstrates the value of adapting an enterprise (as a) system lens.
