Online jury experiences in Industrial Design education and design directions for online platforms

Yavuz, Etkin Cemre
Juries have a significant place in industrial design education as a means of learning and evaluation. Juries have traditionally been conducted mainly in a similar flow and face-to-face for decades. In recent years, online juries have widely experienced the effects of digitalization and the Covid-19 pandemic. This thesis research aims to explore and define the advantages of online juries as well as the needs of students and jurors regarding the limitations of online juries in industrial design education. In the study, online juries were observed, and semi-structured interviews were conducted with both students and jury members in the Department of Industrial Design at METU. The study results determined the convenience and difficulties experienced by students and jury members in online juries. Accordingly, potential design directions are presented for online platforms that will support a better online jury experience by considering traditional jury dynamics.
