Jones & Bartlett Publishing Company
Our project with Jones & Bartlett Publishing Company involved analyzing the usability of the design of the textbook, lab manual, and online lab environment for a new information systems security course that the company was preparing to implement. The company made several changes to the online environment based on the recommendation of CICS students.
Students looked at the usability of changes to the Marian University website. The university was adding an osteopathic medical program to its curricula and wanted to see the best impact on the website. The students compared Marian to several other Catholic university websites and recommended several changes.
Real-world projects often come through the work of the Applied Research Institute (ARI), located in the Ball Communication Building. ARI includes six industry-supported laboratories that play a large role in the graduate academic program while conducting research projects for businesses and governments.
