UIUC Research Study on Idea Management Practice

Hi All,

This is Moushumi, a PhD student from the University of Illinois. My research focuses on designing interactive tools for long term management of ideas. For the last couple of years, we conducted several studies and published our findings in top computer science conferences (ACM SIGCHI).

Currently, we are working on another study that seeks to understand idea management practices for design. The knowledge gained from this study will enable the research team to understand how to build an effective interactive repository for storing, accessing, and sharing ideas for design activity.

The study will consist of an online survey and an informal design session. If you are interested in participating, please complete this survey to provide us with a better understanding of your design background and idea management practices. If you are interested in being considered for the design session, please also provide your contact information. Participants in the design session will receive $30. The information collected in this survey is confidential and will only be used for research purposes.

The survey will take less than 10 minutes and can be found at:

Unfortunately the surveygizmo server is down today. So the link of the survey is not working. I am extremely sorry for the inconvenience. I’ll post another message as soon as the server starts working again.
