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.
