III Projekti tulemuste lühikokkuvõte, üldine hinnang projektile


Projekti tulemuste lühikokkuvõte

Projekti käigus avati TLÜ informaatika instituudis interaktsiooni disaini (ID) professuur ning viidi läbi rahvusvaheline konkurss, mille tulemusena valiti ID professoriks David Lamas. Edasine ID õppe- ja teadussuuna väljaarendamine toimuski tema sisulisel juhtimisel. ID suunal avati kolm järeldoktorantuuri ametikohta (S. Sousa, I.B. da Rosa ja S.Fiedler) ning "Infoühiskonna tehnoloogiad" doktoriõppekavale hakati vastu võtma ID-alaste teemade peale doktorante (aastatel 2010-2012 kokku 4 doktoranti). Eespoolimetatud isikutest moodustatud uurimisrühm osales aktiivselt rahvusvahelise erialakogukonna töös - liituti kolme COST-võrgustikuga (IC1002 – Mumia, IS1203 – ENERGIC, IC0904 – TwinTide), regulaarselt hakati läbi viima Baltikumi WUD-i (World Usability Day) ning "New Media: Experimental Interaction Design" teemal suve- ja talvekoole, edukalt esineti terve rea rahvusvaheliste tippkonverentside töös. Loodi ka ACM SIGCHI(Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction) kohalik allorganisatsioon.Avaldati kokku ligikaudu 30 ISI-artiklit (1.1 ja 3.1). Osaletakse kahe 7.raamprogrammi projekti ja terve rea väiksemate projektide (sh innovatsiooniosakud) täitmises.

Paralleelselt uurimisrühma loomisega arendati edasi ka ID-alase T&A-tegevuse infrastruktuuri ID-labori loomise näol ning "Interaktiive meedia ja teadmuskeskkonnad" (IMKE) rahvusvahelist magistriõppekava: TLÜ uues hoones eraldati ID-laborile ruum A-302 ning sisustati kaasaegse tehnoloogiaga. IMKE-õppekava jaoks loodi 8 uut ainekursust, doktori- ja bakalaureuseõppekava jaoks üks uus ainekursus.


Üldine hinnang projektile

Projekt saavutas kõik taotluses seatud eesmärgid:

1) Interaktsiooni disaini alal on D.Lamasi loodud uurimisrühm vaid kolme aastaga saavutanud rahvusvahelisel tipptasemel akadeemiliseks tegevuseks tarviliku kriitilise massi ning märkimisväärse rahvusvahelise tuntuse ja tunnustatuse; 2) Kaasajastatud on IMKE magistri- ning Infoühiskonna tehnoloogiate doktoriõppekava ning välja on arendatud selleks vajalikud ainekursused ja 3) Loodud on ID alaseks akadeemiliseks tegevuseks vajalik infrastruktuur.



IV Projekti tulemuste analüüs


1. Vastavus taotluses kirjeldatud eesmärkidega:

The goals were achieve as we were able to:



  1. Develop the necessary academic competence in the field of interaction design (including establishing a professorship).

The ID research group was established in February 2010 after D.Lamas took the position of ID professorship. With the project funding, 5 jobs were created:

1 Professor

2 Researchers

2 Interaction Designers



These are full time equivalent positions that are or were occupied by:

  • David Lamas, professor, head

  • Sonia Sousa, researcher (she completed her post-doc in 31.12.2012; the title of her post-doc research was “Activity patterns in informal virtual learning communities (MJD 28)”.

  • Hans Põldoja, researcher

  • Lili Kesa, interaction designer

  • Kairit Tammets, Kersti Toming, Mart Laanpere, Meelis Karp, Pjotr Savitski, Priit Tammets, Vladimir Tomberg.

Additionally, the following members are involved:

  • Isaias Barreto DaRosa, post-doctoral researcher (Bridging the digital divide with mobile digital libraries (ERMOS 82)).

  • Sebastian Fiedler, post-doctoral researcher (The development and re-instrumentation of learning activity in the context of creative work: potentials for systemic intervention into educational practice (MJD 459)).

  • Master students and 4 doctoral students. The doctoral students address topics such as, ubiquitous computing, interaction design aesthetics, sustainable interaction design and the reconceptualization of the e-textbook.

  • Temporary software developers and technical support persons, depending on the projects conducted.

One of the main tasks for acquiring necessary academic competence was to establish firm cooperation with international community:

  • The group joined the following COST networks: TwinTide (http://www.twintide.org/), MUMIA (http://www.mumia-network.eu/) and Energic (http://www.vgibox.eu).

  • The group participated/participates in a number of R&D projects, including the following: CoCreat (http://www.cocreat.eu/), CIAKL (http://ciakl.ulusofona.pt/) and Learning Layers (learning-layers.eu/news/).

  • The group members took actively part on international conferences and seminars – see Appendix 1.

  • Regarding dissemination, the ID Lab as been promoting a series of talks about Interaction Design and related topics (http://idlab.tlu.ee/portfolio/talks/) and it co-organizes since 2011 the World Usability Day in Estonia (http://wud.tlu.ee/). In 2012 this was actually a pan-Baltic event with participants not only from Estonia but also from Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and Russia. The ID Lab also hosts the Estonian chapter of ACM’s Special Interest Group in Computer Human Interaction (http://www.sigchi.org/)




  1. Develop interaction design courses for master and doctoral curricula.

D.Lamas became the head of Interactive Media and Knowledge Environment (IMKE) curriculum council in 2010, immediately taking up his position as professor. The programme is gradually evolving into a solid Human-Computer Interaction and Interaction Design programme. Courses sponsored by the ID Lab are part of the master programme and include:

IFI6150 - Experimental Interaction Design, 5 ECP (12 bachelor level students took this course )

IFI7156 - Interaction Design Methods, 5 ECP (62 master level students)

IFI7155 - Evaluating the User Experience, 5 ECP (43 master level students)

IFI7154 - Developing Interactive Systems, 5 ECP (9 master level students)

IFI7159 - Foundations of Human Computer Interaction, 5 ECP (16 master level students)

IFI7108 - Digital Interactive Audio, 3 ECP (16 master level students)

IFI7110 - Mobile Interactions, 3 ECP (16 master level students)

IFI7112 - Game Interactions, 3 ECP (36 master level students)

IFI7114 - Experimental Input and Output Devices, 3 ECP (26 master level students)

FI8110 - Research Trends in Human-Computer Interaction, 4 ECP (none, the course will be available in 2013/2014 only for doctoral students).

The ID Lab also organized a training on Mobile Interaction Design in co-operation with ITL in 2011, and currently co-organizes the Experimental Interaction Design course offered by Tallinn Summer and Winter Schools (http://summerschool.tlu.ee/ and http://winterschool.tlu.ee/ with 36 students from France, German, Lithuania, Mexico, Romania, Canada, Italy, Netherlands, Greek, Portugal, Spain, Afghanistan, Georgia, and Russia) and contributes to the doctoral program offered by Tallinn University’s Institute of Informatics.

  1. Acquire the necessary infrastructure for academic work (including the establishment of an interaction design laboratory).

Acquiring the necessary infrastructure for the first year (2009) was conducted according the project application; for the years 2, 3 and 4 according the needs of the courses listed above. Specification and costs for the items purchased can be found in Appendix 1.


2. Hinnang lähtudes taotluses esitatud projekti edukuse kriteeriumidest:

There were four success criteria set initially:

  1. The total volume of R&D projects in 2012 is 1,5 million kroon (about 96000 euro)

R&D projects related to ID lab are listed in Appendix 3.


  1. Four ISI publications a year (16 in total)

In fact 34 ISI publications (1.1 and 3.1) were published (only permanent members of the group are counted – D.Lamas, S. Sousa, H.Põldoja, L.Kesa).


  1. 30 students take the ID module.


62 master level students in 2012, mostly from Institute of Informatics own master programs and Baltic Film and Media School Crossmedia Production program. In addition, there have also been a considerable number of students from other programs in Baltic Film and Media School and Tallinn University as well as visiting students from Tallinn Technological University, University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy and Estonian Academy of Arts over the years 2009-2012.


  1. 10 master theses defended in 2012.

One should admit that only 8 master theses were defended in 2012 (five more defended in 2011). On the other hand, successful completion of a thesis depends first of all from the student, not so much from the supervisor.
