Dr Nadine Marcus, Associate Professor, Computer Science & Engineering

Her research interests include:

  • Educational technology
  • Human Computer Interaction
  • Adaptive E-learning
  • Multimedia Instructional Design
  • Cognitive Load Theory
  • Instructional Animations
  • Modelling of Human Cognition
  • Human Robot Interaction/interfaces

Broad research interests

Level 1: I develop online learning strategies to improve student learning

Level 2: I design, develop and test multimedia based strategies to support online learning

Level 3: Using Cognitive Load Theory as a theoretical based I use empirical research methods to develop strategies to facilitate online learning

 

Interest in engineering

Why did you get into engineering?

I am interested in the design of software that people can actually use.  Too much focus in Engineering is often on the functionality of systems, rather than their usability.  In software design both are equally important.

What are your research goals?

To design online learning systems that people can use and actually learn from.

What do people not understand about you do?

I have a cross disciplinary background and can often contribute a unique perspective to different projects – I understand both the technology and the people.

Advice for prospective Computer engineers

It is not enough to just design software with good functionality.  It also needs to be enjoyable and easy to use.

Lectures/Courses taught

I have been teaching Human Computer Interaction since 2001 – includes COMP3511;COMP9511;COMP4511

Students

Number graduated: 30+

Student Projects:
