Persuasive technology is a subfield of Human Computer Interaction that deals with the design, implementation, and evaluation of technology that changes attitudes or behaviors. While persuasive technologies may use a number of techniques, one simple approach relies on making it easier for users to carry out target behaviors. |
Student interns will primarily work to design, prototype, and one or more software based persuasive technologies with the ultimate goal of developing a critical mass of persuasive technology projects at DePauw, which could lead to the development of a small "persuasive technology laboratory." Interns may help to establish a presence for this new laboratory (logo, web page) and may be involved in dissemination activities related to this work. The primary persuasive technology system to be developed during the 2012-2013 academic year is called Trinkon. Trinkon (which stands for Trinkets Online) encourages engagement with organizations by allowing Facebook users to exchange organizationally-themed trinkets. An important goal of Trinkon is to provide a service that allows non-profit organizations to garner support for their group. However, for-profit organizations can also use the system.
Applicants should ideally have completed computer science coursework at least through one 300-level or 400-level computer science course. Applicants should also have experience with mobile programming and with developing software that uses the Facebook API (Application Program Interface). A course in human computer interaction or design would be helpful but is not required.

This position, project manager, will be multi-faceted, involving development work, organizing and running meetings, coordination between outside collaborators at other universities, and managing local participants here at Depauw. |
The project which the development team is currently working on is a classroom polling plugin for Moodle, principally developed at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. This module allows students to be polled during class for assessment purposes through Moodle, similar to the use of DyKnow polls here at Depauw. Our collaborators in Florida have worked hard to increase the project's acceptance world-wide, so collaboration in this process represents a valuable opportunity for a DePauw student to work in a leadership position on an important and wide-reaching software project.
Specific duties for the project manager will be:
* Assign responsibilities to local participants
* Insure development efforts among student collaborators remain consistent
* Insure quality of code produced by local participants
* Contribute to the development effort
* Negotiate project goals and coordinate development responsibilities with outside collaborators
* Schedule and run weekly meetings

The 2011-2012 academic year began the major renovation of the DePauw website and the transfer from the old website to the new. The purpose of the website is to facilitate communication among all sectors of the campus about DePauw’s Sustainability efforts. Internally, many students, staff, and faculty want to know what sustainability efforts are being implemented and how they can be involved. Externally, DePauw has a great interest in making its achievements visible to the broader public, particularly alumni and prospective students. Therefore, we need the continued re-creation and maintenance of a quality, interactive web site. We need an author/editor for the website, who will work well with the Sustainability Director and others on the Sustainability team. This individual should have some knowledge about and interest in the topic of Sustainability, should have excellent writing skills and should have knowledge of/experience with web design and maintenance. The individual should be knowledgeable about creating multimedia stories, which will populate the site.|

We are looking for someone who can make our website shine, who can conceive and implement new ways to make our site more interactive and dynamic. Specifically, the Web Master posts content (stories, photographs, and graphics) Tuesday and Friday mornings before 10 a.m. on our site, which is sponsored by College Publisher. (The issue must be posted on time!) Anyone who can copy, paste, and resize images is ready to start.
Knowledge of programming code not necessary, but desirable. While putting the issue on line is the fundamental responsibility, we want this student to do more than simply cut and paste. Our ideal candidate will be brimming with ideas about how to use new media to increase web traffic and augment our print coverage with new storytelling strategies. Blogs. Twitter. Video. We want to get it all working. The paper will increasingly break news online. The Webmaster would be in charge of the website on a daily basis, but also would be a visionary person who could help us imagine news ways to use our site for both editorial content and advertisements.
Finally, should there be any sort of tech emergency, the Web master would be on call Monday and Thursday nights to come in and fix related problems. This doesn’t happen often (one or two times a semester), but when it does, the Webmaster is an essential part of the team.

The first major project is to convert existing video content (currently in DVD format) into smaller clips to use as embedded video on the new site. The ITAP intern will also capture still images from the DVD for use as part of a multi-media presentation that will include text and graphical content.
If time permits, the ITAP intern will also begin work on a Facebook page designed to connect Malpas alumni with each other and with current scholars.
