Abstract:The aim of this project is to make students studying at the Hogeschool Viaa in Zwolle more aware of the possibilities their school offers to do part of their studies or an internship abroad. Viaa is increasing the number of places where students can do studies and internships abroad, however, they notice that their students often do not know exactly what their options are. As a result of this, some of Viaa’s students miss the opportunity to study abroad, and miss out on a beautiful, educational experience. To understand how people's attention can be drawn in a public space and how awareness can be created on among students, research has been done. Additionally, it has been specified what information must be displayed in order to give the students a good overview of what is possible for them. With the help of the conducted research, a physical, rotating globe was created, where the students could scan the depicted countries using their mobile phone. After scanning, the students were led to a website where they could find all the information they need to get a good idea of the possibilities of studying or doing an internship abroad. An evaluation through user tests with students has shown that the physical globe is a promising concept. The attention of students is captured, they enjoy exploring the possibilities, and they are excited about the information available on the mobile website. The concept will help to create awareness among students about studying or doing an internship abroad, but will need to be further developed from prototype to full-fledged product.
