Understanding the experience of information searching: The Net Lenses Outcome Space

This site explains research results from a recently completed doctoral program into understanding the differences in student experiences of web information searching. In the future it will include exercises to encourage a deeper understanding of the experience of web information searching. The chart to the left provides the outcome space that maps the experience of web-based information searching for university students; and the Flash animation explains the Net Lenses model. In simple terms, the outcome space is a map that summarizes the findings from this phenomenographic study, and the flash animation gives you the breadth and depth of the research findings.
