1. Axford, Patricia. Special Interest Magazine Publishers’ Digital Strategies for Reader Engagement.

Degree: MS, School of Media Sciences (CAD), 2018, Rochester Institute of Technology

This research study is intended to examine the strategies that special interest magazine publishers are utilizing to develop engaging reader experiences. In addition, the role of reader input in the curation and creation of interactive content for these publications is also investigated. Published research has indicated that reader interest in specific topics increases the likelihood of engagement with the publication, resulting in prolonged readership. Furthermore, studies suggest that interactivity has a positive effect on entertainment value, visual appeal, service excellence, and a return on investment with regard to readers. Digital technologies enable publishers to provide readers with bundled offerings with the printed edition together with tablet edition and enhanced content. In addition, it is recognized that although publishers can benefit from information gathered from data tracking of their readers’ behavior, based on the extensive review of the literature, no found research investigated the specific tools or strategies that special interest magazine publishers are using to increase readership and engagement in digital platforms. Using a cross-sectional survey methodology, this study defined the specific tools and strategies that are being used by special interest magazine publishers in order to serve and expand their readership. Advisors/Committee Members: Bruce L. Myers, Michael Riordan.

2. Zainuddin, Aezzaddin Aisyah. The Adoption of Project Based Learning in Graphic Communication Programs.

Degree: MS, School of Media Sciences (CIAS), 2017, Rochester Institute of Technology

Project Based Learning (PBL) is widely recognized as an effective teaching method when compared to traditional lecture-based approaches in the classroom. Recognizing that the graphic communications industry needs employees with requisite skill sets and the established efficacy of PBL as a pedagogical technique for teaching those skills, the researcher examined the implementation of PBL in post-secondary institutions serving the graphic communications industry. A cross-sectional survey was conducted to solicit information from educators in graphic communications programs in the United States. The questionnaire was designed to examine the factors which comprise PBL utilized in the classroom. PBL factors were derived from an extensive search of the relevant literature, and included critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity and innovation, self-direction, and local connections. In the examination of the differences between lecture- and laboratory-based courses with PBL implementation, similarities as well as differences were noted when the mean ranks of the various factors were analyzed. The study also examined the various types of graphic communication courses taught by different degree programs; it is found that the associates' level schools are focused almost entirely on Graphic, Digital and New Media and Printing Technologies and Processes, whereas institutions awarding Bachelor's degrees offered more diverse topics, including Business Management and Entrepreneurship and Materials and Sciences. Finally, the research investigated the support-structures which are in place to support professional development for graphic communications educators. Respondents indicated that over three-quarters of administrators support teachers in their professional development, however funding and release time for development were not as widely cited. Overall, to fully adopt these PBL activities as part of their pedagogy, it is crucial for them to prepare themselves with these teaching techniques. Further, having a clear goal of exposing students to real-work outcomes could help educators to shift the mindset of their students with not only requisite technical skills but also the desired soft-skills such as working collaboratively and managing projects.

3. Christensen, Jeannine. Telemedicine application at the University of Rochester Medical Center Strong Memorial Hospital in conjunction with the New York State Department of Corrections.

Degree: Information Sciences and Technologies (GCCIS), 2000, Rochester Institute of Technology

Telemedicine has been around for several years and it is inevitable that this technology will shape the current healthcare environment. Doctors are often faced with the challenges of the laws of time and distance. With the presence of telemedicine, the idea of having access to a physician at any given time becomes a reality. This paper will present an exciting concept of telemedicine for today and tomorrow with an emphasis on the advancement of health care delivery systems. This thesis will also attempt to present the cost saving factors that telemedicine can provide not only to patient care but also to the financial and administrative aspects of healthcare. It will provide a summation of goals, design description and the initial cost of implementing a telemedicine application. This paper will be a combination of discussions on general telemedicine applications and a practical implementation. It culminated with a presentation of an actual telemedicine project that the University of Rochester Medical Center implemented in conjunction with the New York State Department of Corrections telemedicine project. I was a member of the team that designed and implemented the first "true" telemedicine application for Strong Memorial Hospital. Jeannie L. Christensen - Page 4 of 81 Capstone Thesis It consists of an outlined discussion as presented on the Table of Contents and the networking design proposal to implement a telemedicine project. The paper also investigated some other telemedicine applications at the University of Rochester Medical Center that can be implemented in the future. We tried to follow a rigid timeline, but due to some delay on procuring the leased line we fell a little behind on the implementation. The committee for Telemedicine in Strong Memorial Hospital met on a regular basis and assessed the technological needs of each department. Below was the tentative timeline for the project itself. The dates changed based on how promptly the vendors were able to meet the project requirements: March 30, 1998 - T1 Installation March 15-20, 1998 - Support Staff Training April 15, 1998 - Test Phase April 30, 1998 - Final implementation My primary role in this implementation is to design the wide and local area network for the University of Rochester Medical Center. I also participated in several of the committee meetings which outlines other administrative issues involved, such as the emergency room renovations, feasibility of extending video conference services, discussions on cost and billing issues, and a visit of an actual correctional facility to observe its telemedicine application. Advisors/Committee Members: Haake, Anne, Myers, Michael.
