Research Overview

Jordan’s research explores the discovery of models that eventually lead to the design of interfaces and tools that give their users better ways to understand themselves and how they work. He designs interactions that analyse user data and help them improve their skills (e.g. facilitating transition). His research involves primarily three major types of activities: modeling user and personal data as they interact with specific technologies and tools; the design of new interactions towards adaptive and personalised learning and; the evaluation of these interaction technologies. These activities involve certain thematic areas:
