Over the Shoulder Learning

Total Funding to Date



  • Michael Twidale

Outside of conventional classes, outside of schools and universities, how do people learn things? Often they ask a colleague to help show them what to do. It sounds obvious, but all our work on interface design, help systems, manuals and even training seems to ignore it. What would systems be like if they actively tried to support this process? That is what this research tries to address.
