Research on digital windows

Undergrads Astha Sharma and Anisah Khandakar worked with Dr. Wohn and Dr. Kum-Biocca in Digital Design on research that explored the effectiveness of having a digital “window” installed in offices that had no windows. They installed a digital window that featured a nature landscape video in these offices and tracked people’s mood, happiness, and productivity. They found that having a digital window elevated mood and happiness, but did not raise or decrease work productivity. Their research was published and presented at the ACM Conference on Interactive Media.
