In this study, we investigate the effects of social context, personal and mobile phone usage on the inference of work engagement/challenge levels of knowledge workers and their responsiveness to well-being related notifications. Our results show that mobile application usage is associated to the responsiveness and work engagement/challenge levels of knowledge workers. We also developed multi-level (within- and between-subjects) models for the inference of attentional states and engagement/challenge levels with mobile application usage indicators as inputs, such as the number of applications used prior to notifications, the number of switches between applications, and application category usage. The results of our analysis show that the following features are effective for the inference of attentional states and engagement/challenge levels: the number of switches between mobile applications in the last 45 minutes and the duration of application usage in the last 5 minutes before users' response to ESM messages.


A Mobile sensing framework for audience emotion analysis
Kepucka, Eldjon; Temizel, Alptekin; Department of Information Systems (2014)
The main objective of this thesis is to develop a multi-modal framework which facilitates simple data collection using mobile sensing on smartphones from an audience, for the duration of an experimental study. Current solutions primarily rely on custom mobile sensing platforms which are expensive to develop and complicated to apply. While there are a number of mobile sensing platforms developed for smartphones targeting different domains, such as transportation and air pollution they are not designed to be ...
A sampling methodology for usability testing of consumer products considering individual differences
Berkman, Ali Emre; Erbuğ, Çiğdem; Department of Industrial Design (2010)
Aim of the study was to discuss and identify individual differences that influence the user performance during usability tests of consumer products that are known to prevent researchers to conduct systematic studies. The rationale behind the study was developing a tool for sampling in order to handle experiential factors as a variable rather than a source of error. The study made it possible to define and elaborate on constructs general interaction expertise (GIE) and general interaction self efficacy (GISE...
Examining place attachment from a foursquare perspective
Öz, Bilgehan Kürşad; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba; Department of Information Systems (2014)
The aim of the study is to understand the relationship between self-reported place attachment and attachment measured by means of mobile applications that provide location-based services. To meet this end, a survey is conducted to measure place attachment and participants are asked about the places they prefer under certain categories, their attachments to these places, and properties of these places. In the second part of the study, participants’ Foursquare log data is collected which includes their checki...
A Context-aware and workflow-based framework for pervasive environments
Avenoğlu, Bilgin; Eren, Pekin Erhan; Department of Information Systems (2014)
In this thesis study, a framework offering people help and guidance for organizing their daily activities is proposed. This framework allows users to model their daily activities in the form of workflows. Due to the dynamic nature of pervasive environments, workflows are enabled to be adaptable at runtime according to context information collected in pervasive environments. A workflow engine is used for modeling and management of workflows and a separate rule engine with Complex Event Processing (CEP) capab...
A Comparative Evaluation of Two Computer SupportedCollaborative Work Systems for Supporting Collaborative BusinessProcess Modeling Activities
Fındık Coşkunçay, Duygu; Çakır, Murat Perit (2018-10-01)
In this study, a comparative evaluation of different Computer-Supported Collaborative Work CSCW environments was conducted to reveal their constraints and affordances for supporting synchronous collaborative business process modeling cBPM activities online. For this purpose, two case studies were carried out with two CSCW systems that differ in terms of their interaction design features for supporting joint work. The dual-eye tracking method was employed to monitor how the participants focused their attenti...
