Student Web Portal

The proposed research project proposes to study how to best provide a student learning portal for children of age 8 to 13 years old. Such system requires to carefully reviewing the literature both in terms of designing for children, and in terms of interpreting the results of usability studies with children. Designing an effective student learning portal will demand of the intern to take into consideration what is attractive for this age group and how to make those students willing to spend some time online for their study. This includes looking at colors schemes, type of activities, type of motivations, etc. Another difficult task will be to extract valuable information from the children when testing the interface. For the partner company, this portal is a critical building block of their business: no company today can remain state of the art without providing online environment for their students.
