EyeTrack Tablet Research Debut at Medill

The questions: How do readers choose what news to consume? And once they choose, how do they actually read it?

Over the last 18 months we’ve explored questions of how users consume news on tablets. This research tracked reading on iPads based on three different navigation paradigms: Traditional, Carousel and Tile. Inside each of the three prototypes, the prototypes all use the same 20 stories with identical presentations to better test how different media types – text, photos, video and graphics – vary the reading experience.

The presentation of findings will be streamed live today and will be available as an archive for later viewing.

Follow the talk of Chicago’s NATO summit

Working as part of the Northwestern’s Knight Lab for News Innovation, I helped design the NATO in Chicago site. The site explores what members of the world’s media are publishing about the summit and what individuals are Tweeting leading up to and during the summit.
