First Class Honours Graduate of BA (Hons) in Multimedia at Cork Institute of Technology (2015). My final year project was to design and develop an artefact that could be used to enhances a child’s experience of a heritage centre or museum. I worked in a group with two others to create “Puzzlebeo”, an interactive, multimodal jigsaw puzzle and interactive wall nodes which were designed for use in the Titanic Heritage Centre in Cobh, Co. Cork. I was responsible for the user testing and the user evaluation as part of the project. This was when I developed a key interest to research this area of evaluation and pedagogy further.
