Voice Switch/Brain Switch is an interdisciplinary study run by a language scientist and a theatre dialect coach. In Summer 2021, we designed and launched the website for this project. Branding Design provided by Digital Media & Design professor Ting Zhou.
UConn Physiology and Neurobiology
During Summer 2021, we redesigned and launched the website for the UConn Physiology & Neurobiology department.
UConn Stamford Data Science Initiative
Under the leadership of Creative Director, DMD Professor Samantha Olschan, our team designed and built the website for UConn’s new Stamford Data Science Initiative. The web design and development was led by Emily Ha with Faculty Support from Brian Daley, Joel Salisbury, and Mike Vertefeuille.
During Fall ’20, we were approached by new friend David Dickson of the CT NEMO Program. CT NEMO maintains Rain Garden App, a FREE PWA (Progressive Web App). Through video tutorials, diagrams, text, and tools, the App guides users through how to properly locate, size, install, plant, and maintain a rain garden to help protect local waterways.
What if food banks could better know the quality of their inventory? In collaboration with UConn's Rudd Center on Food Policy and Obesity, and with support from Partnership For Healthier America, Feeding America, and others, the DX Lab has developed a suite of web/mobile applications product for use by food banks, food pantries, and other organizations for ranking the nutritional quality of their inventory.
This application is housed, licensed and serviced at the University of Connecticut, and includes the WellScan Global nutrition database, WellScan Connect API, WelScan Mini scanning app.
Covid Surveillance Testing
Along with the Institute for Systems Genomics, the DX Group received an award from UConn's COVID-19 Rapid Seed Funding (COVID-RSF) Program for creation of a website and dynamic dashboard to showcase the University's response to COVID-19 titled "An Integrated Surveillance Program for Improved Detection, Containment and Mitigation of COVID-19."
The DX Group built and maintains an ever-growing digital presence to serve as the central source of Information about Connecticut's Digital Media Industry and Education scene. We created a digital platform to serve as the central hub for Digital Media Education and Industry in the state of CT.
Sourcery emerged from the design process of Greenhouse Studios and from the project team’s past work and ongoing interests in research software for the humanities.
Working with Greenhouse Studios, we developed an application that gives researchers access to documents that can’t be found online by paying other researchers to find them.
What if classroom evaluators had a tablet app for their in-class assessment? We built CMOT (Classroom Management Observation Tool) under the direction of Dr. Jen Freeman of the UConn Neag School of Education and her associated UConn REP (Research Excellence Program) grant. It allows observers to enter progress monitoring items, which have been validated for informing decisions about relative strengths/needs with positive and proactive classroom management. It also contains a checklist of empirically-supported practice features to periodically “look for”.
Concept art and working prototypes designed in DX Lab, Fall 2018, a webcam-based application identifies faces and unlocks a door.
Tree Sway Monitor
In collaboration with UConn NRE Researcher Amanda Bunce, in an interpretation of some of her research, the DX Lab created and installed "Tree Sway Monitor" at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT. Part of the Aldrich's "Weather Report", this is large-format digital piece reflecting live tree sway data from a tree outside the museum.
