Brief Overview of Abiodun Ogunyemi
Abiodun is a Research Fellow of Digital Transmission and Lifelong Learning at Tallinn University. His backgrounds are in Computer Science, Information Systems, and Human-Computer Interaction. Abiodun received his Ph.D. at Tallinn University in Informatics, specifically researching in the domain of Human-Computer Interaction. He has over ten years of academia-industry knowledge. He has participated in many EU-COST sponsored HCI summer schools where he and other students have undertaken various interactive system research problems and how to use HCI methods to investigate these problems. Recently, he worked in the lab for Non-textual materials at the German National Library of Science and Technology as a User Researcher/UX studies Specialist. Abiodun is a passionate advocate of human-centered software engineering. He has been researching this topic area within the domain of human-computer interaction since 2013. He is keen on the integration of human-centered design methods into the software engineering process. Specifically, he is interested in tools and techniques for facilitating the integration of agile and UCD and identifying challenges associated with implementing agile UCD in companies. As an outcome of his doctoral studies, he deployed an online self-assessment tool for facilitating the uptake of HCI practice in software development companies. Currently, he is investigating how to enhance learners’ engagement in virtual learning spaces such as massive open online courses.
