Since the beginning of 2017, three projects have been in development: research into experience and aesthetics of interaction, an online resource management system and pattern recognition in the aid of evaluation processes.

Research on Experience and Aesthetic of Interaction

The research on Experience and Aesthetics of Interaction investigates the symbolic-affective relationship between people and computational artifacts, mapping how these artifacts are capable of exerting a fascination effect on them, while seeking to understand the aesthetic values that govern the computational media. The objective of the research is to provide conceptual subsidies, mental models, and a structured reference panel that can assist the creative work in the design of this type of artifact.

During the 2017-2019 biennium this research will pay special attention to the study of how narrative artifacts are transformed into computational objects, and especially those that incorporate a diversity of media in this transposition.

AMS (Assets management system)

Since the first steps in the mapping of digital artifacts began to be carried out during the research conducted at the Interactive Environments Research Laboratory (LPAI / SENAC-SP), the need for a system in which it was possible to catalog, organize and cross references being mapped was also identified. The need for organization of bibliographical references, projects and other resources used in the presentation of the results of the research was united to this demand.

AMS was created to assist in these tasks, but is being developed so that it can operate in a generic way, cataloging and organizing any resource types from an online spreadsheet, with all the flexibility that this type of software can have (such as dragging rows or columns for better viewing of records, re-arranging records in alphabetical order, including formulas in fields, filtering records, etc.).

The tool is not yet mature enough for a public release, but will be made available in a repository as soon as it can be implemented and adopted by anyone interested in the project.

EIE (Educational Information Entanglement)

This project, which started as a tool for pattern recognition to aid assessment activities, today is distributed in a varied set of processes that try to transform records such as problems found in the classroom, trainees and treinee places, evaluations and criteria, and many other information recorded, in useful and interrelated documents that can contribute to what is practiced within a classroom.
