Strategy hubs: next-generation domain portals with search procedures
Found in: Proceedings of the conference on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '03)
By Bichakjian K. Christopher, Frederick A. Peck, Jennifer L. Schwartz, Roderick J. Little, Suresh K. Bhavnani, Timothy M. Johnson, Victor J. Strecher
Issue Date:April 2003
pp. 393-400
Current search tools on the Web, such as general-purpose search engines (e.g. Google) and domain-specific portals (e.g. MEDLINEplus), do not provide search procedures that guide users to form appropriately ordered sub-goals. The lack of such procedural kno...
     
Strategy-Based Instruction: Lessons Learned in Teaching the Effective and Efficient Use of Computer Applications
Found in: ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (TOCHI)
By Frederick A. Peck, Frederick Reif, Suresh K. Bhavnani
Issue Date:May 2008
pp. 1-43
Numerous studies have shown that many users do not acquire the knowledge necessary for the effective and efficient use of computer applications such as spreadsheets and Web-authoring tools. While many cognitive, cultural, and social reasons have been offer...
     
Exploring the distribution of online healthcare information
Found in: CHI '03 extended abstracts on Human factors in computer systems (CHI '03)
By Frederick A. Peck, Jennifer Nardine, Renju T. Jacob, Suresh K. Bhavnani
Issue Date:April 2003
pp. 816-817
Motivated by the importance of retrieving comprehensive healthcare information, we analyzed how information about 12 concepts related to a widely available healthcare topic is distributed across 145 high-quality webpages. The analysis reveals that the dist...
     
Domain-specific search strategies for the effective retrieval of healthcare and shopping information
Found in: CHI '02 extended abstracts on Human factors in computer systems (CHI '02)
By Suresh K. Bhavnani
Issue Date:April 2002
pp. 610-611
An increasing number of users are performing searches on the Web in unfamiliar domains such as healthcare. However, because many users lack domain-specific search knowledge, their searches are often ineffective. An important remedy is to make domain-specif...
     
Beyond command knowledge: identifying and teaching strategic knowledge for using complex computer applications
Found in: Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '01)
By Bonnie E. John, Frederick Reif, Suresh K. Bhavnani
Issue Date:March 2001
pp. 229-236
Despite experience, many users do not make efficient use of complex computer applications. We argue that this is caused by a lack of strategic knowledge that is difficult to acquire just by knowing how to use commands. To address this problem, we present e...
     
Designs conducive to the use of efficient strategies
Found in: Proceedings of the conference on Designing interactive systems: processes, practices, methods, and techniques (DIS '00)
By Suresh K. Bhavnani
Issue Date:August 2000
pp. 338-345
Studies on the widespread inefficient use of complex computer applications have suggested that users need to learn efficient strategies in addition to learning how to use tools. This paper argues that our growing understanding of strategic knowledge can be...
     
Strategic approach to computer literacy
Found in: CHI '00 extended abstracts on Human factors in computer systems (CHI '00)
By Suresh K. Bhavnani
Issue Date:April 2000
pp. 161-162
Despite experience, many users do not progress from a basic use of computer applications to a more efficient use. To address this problem, we designed a strategic approach to training which focused on teaching efficient strategies in addition to commands. ...
     
The strategic use of CAD: an empirically inspired, theory-based course
Found in: Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems: the CHI is the limit (CHI '99)
By Bonnie E. John, Suresh K. Bhavnani, Ulrich Flemming
Issue Date:May 1999
pp. 183-190
We present an approach to control information flow in object-oriented systems. The decision of whether an informatin flow is permitted or denied depends on both the authorizations specified on the objects and the process by which information is obtained an...
     
From sufficient to efficient usage: an analysis of strategic knowledge
Found in: Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '97)
By Bonnie E. John, Suresh K. Bhavnani
Issue Date:March 1997
pp. 91-98
We present an approach to control information flow in object-oriented systems. The decision of whether an informatin flow is permitted or denied depends on both the authorizations specified on the objects and the process by which information is obtained an...
     
Exploring the unrealized potential of computer-aided drafting
Found in: Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems: common ground (CHI '96)
By Bonnie E. John, Suresh K. Bhavnani
Issue Date:April 1996
pp. 332-339
We present an approach to control information flow in object-oriented systems. The decision of whether an informatin flow is permitted or denied depends on both the authorizations specified on the objects and the process by which information is obtained an...
