A study of the effectiveness of a Clemson-developed smartphone app for people with intellectual disabilities has yielded impressive results. The app, Task Analysis Lite, assists users in the completion of everyday tasks for home and work. Clemson’s study of the app found large gains in the performance of task completion once the app was incorporated. The app was developed through an interdisciplinary partnership between Clemson’s school of computing and ClemsonLIFE, a program that provides postsecondary education for students with intellectual disabilities.
Jill Newman graduated from Clemson University in December 2017 with a master’s in wildlife and fisheries biology. Since then, she has had a chapter of her thesis accepted for publication in the “Journal of Herpetology.” The journal is an international peer-reviewed, quarterly publication of the Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles and was […]
A customizable, hands-on virtual reality and advanced display system is under development at Clemson University that could change how scientists across the country share information and collaborate, as well as how students learn. The project is one of two grants recently awarded by the National Science Foundation’s Major Research Instrumentation program (MRI). An MRI grant awarded to environmental researcher Thomas O’Halloran funds the acquisition of a soil greenhouse gas flux measuring system that will help scientists better understand the release of harmful greenhouse gases from the soil to the atmosphere.
