HearPeers Heroes hadron Posted February 13, 2014 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted February 13, 2014 Hi, For M.I.T. 21W.789 the goal is to develop a novel mobile application based on real-world experience of hearing implant users. Med-El's easyguide app is a nice app but was developed by Med-El and is not based on real-world experiences of hearing implant users. The domain of interest I have chosen is obviously hearing implants (I am a MED-EL Opus 2 user since 2010). Since the domain of hearing implants is large, I would like to focus initially on how hearing implant users communicate information with others. The course is project based and guides students through creating a novel mobile application - from generative research to design, usability, implementation and field evaluation. I am currently at the generative research stage where I am required to do a 1 week field study of the domain and develop research questions and conduct a study, this is where you hopefully and thankfully come in. As part of the study I need at least 5-10 hearing implant users to answer the research questions. If you would like to participate please reply to this email or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will answer any questions. If you think additional questions should be added to the research or would like me to also focus on other areas beside communcations please let me know. A YouTube video by Professors Bentley and Barrett describe the course and goals much better than I do. The video can be seen at: Thank you.
