User Experience Research for the Next Decade in Education and Visual Arts: Through Analyzing and Visualizing Research Subjects for the Last 20 Years
The purpose of this study is to investigate how UX-related subjects have been studied in both Education and Visual Arts between 2000 and 2019 to identify the trends and the relationship between the two disciplines. This study collected peer-reviewed journal articles found in Penn State University’s online library that included User Experience or UX in their titles. These articles were then analyzed to identify what subjects were studied and how they were related to the two disciplines. The data allowed visualization of frequencies and relationships between subjects using Gephi 0.9.2, freeware software for visualizing data. The findings depicted the mainstream of the research subjects and relationships between subjects in Education and Visual Arts. Our findings would support researchers seeking to study a future research UX-related subject in the Education and Visual Arts as well as in the multidiscipline.
