Title: Library Learning Objects UX Study - Final Report
Author: McLaughlin, Juliene
Abstract: In April 2017, the library's UX Team set out to discover students’ perceptions of digital learning objects and how they integrate them into their studies. We interviewed 18 students in self-selected groups of 2-4 students. Students were recruited from CHEM 1050, a difficult required course which draws students from several different majors. Based on our findings we recommend: (1) marketing resources and services in a way which students see a direct link with the core content of their courses, rather than as ancillary learning strategies; (2) focusing on creating videos, rather than handouts. If handouts, make them very short; (3) continuing to provide both print and online versions; (4) following up with students who have met with learning peers or staff to check in with how their study strategies are working; (5) striving to integrate materials into Courselink, especially as news items; and (6) encouraging library staff who are currently collecting quantitative data to try some in-depth interviews. This study study produced a rich description of how students describe their own studying habits and how they interact with the supports and services on campus.
