OWL UxD Research

Welcome to the Research area of the Purdue OWL. This section houses scholarship and research - past and present - on OWLs. Please check back as we continue to expand this section.

Note: This study refers to an older version of the OWL site active until July 2018.

In the Fall of 2014, the Purdue Online Writing Lab partnered with Prof. Michael Salvo's ENGL 515: Advanced Professional Writing (Capstone) class to begin exploring issues of usability and user-centered design (UxD) on the Purdue OWL. Below, you can access Prof. Salvo's class' final report and recommendations to the Purdue OWL Staff.
