From Paper to the Web to the Tablet (and Back) : Exploring Cross-Media Linking and Content Creation
In the context of the MobiCraNT project, this thesis will focus on the study of cross-media linking. In particular, the student will investigate how the same digital content (e.g. articles from a catalogue in a database) can be presented in different media, such as paper documents, websites and tablet-friendly digital documents. Moreover, the student will study how these different media can be tightly linked, using the strengths of one medium to cover the weaknesses of another. This thesis will begin with a study of the state of the art before creating a series of prototypes. These prototypes will then be evaluated to find which techniques answer best the issues of cross-media linking.
Study of how different media can co-exist and enrich each other through rich links
Automatic layouting of content based on the device or medium
Creation of multiple iterative prototypes over the course of the thesis
