A focus group held on 27 February provided useful feedback on the mobile discovery interface which has influenced development and led to an advanced search option being added.
Extensive exploration of authentication options led to the project team concluding that a simpler PIN authentication process cannot be provided for mobile users at this time.
Activities completed in March
- Completion of diary study and analysis of participant feedback
- Work has started on inclusion of local audio and video content from the OU Learn channel on the university’s podcast server in the mobile discovery tool.
