    Understanding the design: A qualitative study of architecture and urban planning visualisation techniques in a public consultation setting2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Visualisation of proposed plans and designs can be done with a number of differenttechniques within the field of architecture and urban planning. But which visualisationtechnique is best suited when presenting a design proposal at a public consultation? Is therea breaking point where the user can form a general understanding of the proposed designdepending on the degree of fidelity? To seek answers to these questions a qualitative studywas conducted where five different visualisation techniques were tested on ten users toassess their understanding of a proposed design. Our findings show that there is not asingle best visualisation technique for public consultation. Based on our results thepreferred alternative would be a combination of several techniques. We could also see thatthe general understanding of a space increased until a certain degree, and after that adeeper more detail oriented understanding was achieved.

    Företag på Facebook: Hur de sprider information och interagerar med sina medlemmar2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social media on the Web has become more common over the last decade and in recent years it has grown immensely. The social media with the highest amount of members is Facebook, where not only private persons are found - companies started to establish their profiles on the network in 2006. However, little is known about how these companies succeed and reach their audience with information dissemination and interact with them. The aim of this study is to contribute with information to local companies on how they can manage to maintain their activity with different approaches and strategies. This study examines how three different local companies chooses to spread information and maintain relationships with their members on Facebook. The research question in this thesis is: How are companies active on Facebook, in regard of dissemination of information and interaction? This is examined with the help of a framework which suggests three strategies with different grades of activity, which is applicable on the companies Facebook sites. The three strategies proposed by Waters, Burnett, Lamm and Lucas (2009) include disclosure, information dissemination and involvement. Disclosure contains a description about the company and its services, logo and opening hours. Information dissemination comprises photographs, video and audio files as well as news and campaigns in posted announcements or links. Involvement includes interactivity with customers, and between customers where ways to contact the company, such as e-mail and message boards exists. An e-commerce store is also presented in this strategy. The outcome of this thesis is that companies will have the best approach and strategy if they mirror their Facebook strategy with their business strategy. It is also of great importance to have continuous activity, both information dissemination and interactivity on the companies Facebook sites.

    Intelligent automatisering av affärsprocesser: Organisatoriska utmaningar och möjligheter2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Organizations have for a long time been using IT to increase the effectiveness and productivity of their employees. Today, organizations are taking it one step further, and have begun using IT as a way of automating business processes where large amounts of information is being handled. With a rising ability to handle an increasing number of complex tasks, automation is likely to change the foundation of organizations, and modern-day work. However, assessing the impact that automation will have on an organization is difficult, and research in this field is scarce. The purpose of this study is to examine the organizational opportunities, and challenges, that emerges when information-based business processes are automated. We conducted a case study of the ongoing automation efforts at a large insurance company. The results show that the challenges an organization faces are mainly linked to organizational management, while the perceived opportunities are mainly connected to the daily operations. Based on this, we provide organizations with guidelines on how to handle the challenges and seize the opportunities.

    Datormedierad kommunikation upprätthåller kontakten: IT som stöd för internationella studenter och soldater i utlandstjänst vid geografisk distansering2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    It has become more popular to work abroad and companies have become more global than they used to. A big reason for this is due to globalization and the progress done within the field of technology. Because of this aloofness that occurs, a gap between the expatriates’ personal life and his or her working life develops. The cases focused on in this paper includes people who are distanced from their private lives at least a few consecutive months but are all aiming to get back when they are done with their individual errands. Computer-Mediated Communication can help these people to keep in touch and can also help them to stay in both places without physically being there. By taking advantage of the technological development that exists today it can help relatives and other people to stay close during these periods of time. When the expatriates’ come back to their private lives it can be as they never went away if Computer-Mediated Communication have been used frequently. This paper addresses the issue of emotional and geographical aloofness with research within the area of organizational use of Social Media and other types of Computer-Mediated Communication.

    Att automatisera arbetsprocesser inom äldrevård med hjälp av digitala verktyg: En kvalitativ studie över digitalisering av arbetsprocesser hos nattpatrullen2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Because of the demographic change and staff shortage during night shifts, the elder care have to find new sources to lower the workload. Many have studied ways to digitize and automate some work routines to take off load from the personnel. One that is in use today is digital cameras that helps personnel to routine check elder patients during the night. The study is based in northern Sweden where different locations have been examined and on their experience of digital technology. The society’s attitude toward technology have changed over the past 10 years, where people have become accustomed to use tools in different ways. Elderly Care have begun approaching digitalization and as today, various technical tools are being used. Several pilot projects are being launched in which new technologies are being tested. The goal is to find tools that help elder care to respond to future workload and to offer a more adapted aid for the elder. This study have focused on today's elderly care and how their activity focuses on digitizing their routines and services. An example of the phenomenon is digital night supervision, which is a way to offer night supervision through a digital camera. The purpose of this study is to open a discussion regarding digital solutions in the field of elder care, where to study the tools that are available today that can support the personnel. The goal is to contribute with  increased understanding and examine attitudes towards digital tools as well as examine what is required to gain increased acceptance toward digitization.

    Challenges of introducing and implementing mobile payments: A Qualitative study of the Swedish mobile payment application WyWallet2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Citizens of Sweden are now facing a large shift in their habits of managing money transferring using mobile phones. They are now forced to use an application called WyWallet when making purchases with cell-phones. WyWallet is an application based on a new EU-directive that has led to a law concerning the new payment service act that wants to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. This has led to a lot of consequences for the citizens and also other agencies relying on donations via text messages. This research has its focus on investigating how a mobile payment method in a modern society has failed in meeting their customers’ demands and requirements by having a customer focus. The material was collected through a focus group and subsequent in-depth interviews in order to reach an understanding of customer’s feelings, attitudes and expectations towards mobile payment methods. The findings show that several factors such as expectations, environmental issues, technological aspects, compatibility issues and convenience issues are not targeted in order to meet the requirement of customers and the current infrastructure of the society.

    Sociala medier - Ett framgångsrikt verktyg för offentliga verksamheter?: En kvalitativ studie av hur verksamheter som riktar sig till ungdomar och unga vuxna använder sig av sociala medier.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social media is used widely around the world by millions of people every day. In this report an analysis has been made of how organisations that are directed towards marginalized adolescents and young adults, are using social media in their working processes. The data has been gathered through qualitative interviews and case studies of three organisations, which are in different stages in their use of social media. The results from the study indicates that every chosen organisation wants to use social media applications for the same purpose, which is to be available where their target audience is situated, but their progress is reduced by elements such as priority, lack of knowledge and time.

    Abstract [en]

    Women’s underrepresentation within eSport is something that should be considered asa problem, but the game industry and gaming community excludes the women as atarget group. In this essay we will explore the reasons behind women’s lack ofinvolvement within eSport and competitive games, present the challenges they facewhen playing these types of games and what needs to be changed for a more uniformground between the sexes. We chose to focus on the social aspects as to why girls stayaway from eSport and these types of games in general. With the use of multiplequalitative research methods and a number of participants we have been able toconfirm four different themes. With the help of these themes we analysed the currentstate of the gaming community and was able to find the answers to our questions.

    Digital Fabrication and Open Concepts: An emergent paradigm of consumer electronics production2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Open Source och relaterade mjukvarukoncept och utvecklingsmodeller är vid det här laget allmänt bekanta och har varit föremål för många studier. Open Source Hardware är mindre spritt och studerat, och så även emergent teknologi som för in traditionellt industriella tekniker som 3D-printing, laserskärare, och CAD-baserade produktionsverktyg i mindre skala i hem- och hobbymiljöer. Dessa ämnen har främst studerats ur mer renodlat tekniska perspektiv, snarare än att sättas i samband i en vidare kontext. Denna kombinerar internet som infrastruktur och socialt medium för kunskaps- och resursdelning; open source-koncept; de möjligheter som tillgängligheten av mer och mer kapabel och överkomlig hårdvara byggd på öppen design bereder; och andra relaterade socio-tekniska fenomen vilka börjat framträda de senaste 5-10 åren.

    I denna uppsats undersöker jag denna större kontext. Uppsatsen har utförts i form av en litteraturstudie av existerande forskning inom ovanstående diskreta områden, och i den mån de finns även dess inbördes relationer. Denna kontext framträder som ett emergent paradigm kring produktion av hemelektronik, och även som exemplifierande trenden av teknologins fortsatta intåg som allestädes närvarande i våra liv och vår omgivning. Resultaten indikerar en gryende förändring i hur vi interagerar med teknik, vilka som gör det och varför, i vilka kontexter, och ett framträdande av en ny ekonomi. Jag visar på att ytterligare forskning behövs, och att perspektivet bör flyttas från att analyseras enbart i diskreta termer som teknik, open source-principer, DIY et cetera, utan även till vad som framstår som resultatet där dessa konvergerar, den naturliga konsekvensen av ett folkligt anammande av denna teknik och open source-koncept.

    HTML-ramverk i praktiken: En studie av HTML-ramverk från utvecklarens perspektiv2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aim to present a model for evaluating what we choose to call HTML-frameworks, a framework that contains a set of CSS layouts and occasionally JavaScript support, based on the characteristics of the software quality standard ISO/IEC 9126-1. The methods used to produce this model is based on a field study that involved making a web portal with the help of a HTML-framework, some relevant literature and an analysis of the framework based on the characteristics of the ISO/IEC 9126-1 standard. The result was a model based on twelve different characteristics; functionality, web browser compatibility, collaborative skills, user-friendliness, documentation, visuals, graphic layout, performance, activity, professional support, replaceability and license. This model should be viewed upon as a suggestion to what a model for choosing HTML-framework could look like, because we haven’t had the time to test it in a real situation, so further studies are needed, and we believe there could be improvements made in the objectivity of the assessments of the characteristics.

    “Man vill ju få så många likes som möjligt”: En studie om hur likes och kommentarer påverkar unga kvinnors identitetsskapande på Instagram2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Previous literature have shown that social media has a large impact on people in

    today’s society, especially on younger women who wish to create a certain identity.

    However, studies on how quantitative feedback affects the establishment of ones

    online identity are limited, which gives incentive to investigate this area further. This

    thesis provides a deeper understanding of how younger women perceive onlineidentities,

    ‘likes’, and comments on the social media platform Instagram. Semistructured

    interviews were conducted in order to give new perspectives on the subject.

    The main conclusions are that younger women have an extensive need to seek

    approval and that they customize their online-identity by exploiting trends in order to

    maximize the number of ’likes’ and comments.

    Abstract

    Digital media in general and social media in particular are becoming more and more important to businesses across the globe. It is an effective way to reach out to consumers and establish a good relationship with existing customers. Most companies today use digital media in order to market themselves and to establish good public relations. A lot of those companies have also realized the enormous marketing capabilities that social media provides. However, in spite of the plethora of possibilities that comes with social media it can also, in some cases, hinder the companies ́ success. In this essay I attempt to come up with a framework of strategies for how social media can be used in an effective way for marketing and PR. In order to accomplish this, I perform a quantitative study of how a dinner-kit company called Middagsfrid and their customers use the interactional features of Facebook. Finally, I present a framework of strategies for how social media can be used for marketing and PR.

    The study conducted in this essay shows that it is important for companies to be active when communicating through social media and to explicitly seek interaction from the customers in order to have some control over the message that is being sent out. Furthermore, it shows that if a company wants to be a part of the social media-scene it is of great importance to do so wholeheartedly and with a plan.
