Athabasca University e-Lab

Research & Development

The Athabasca University e-Lab enables AU faculty and students to work together to build the next generation of scholarly research within the university.  By connecting scholars with similar research interests, the e-Lab helps build a strong, connected research portfolio for the university.

The e-Lab has supported and facilitated numerous research projects within the university, including video game studies, virtual worlds such as Second Life, QR coding, e-book readers, wellness in the workplace, mobile learning, autism research, and decision making engines.

Students, academic staff, and university partners may use Athabasca University’s e-Lab to

  • recruit, or participate as, research subjects
  • locate testers for usability studies
  • demonstrate the results of course and program-related research projects

Research proposals are invited from both faculty and students. Please note that all research featured in AU’s e-Lab is subject to the University’s Privacy and Ethics policies and procedures.

Contact us with your research proposal for inclusion on the e-Lab site including any requirement you have for research subjects or testers.
