Wilson, E. Vance
In this project, the concepts of Behavior Change Support Systems (BCSS) and responsive design were reviewed, and these theories/methodologies were applied to the development of a phone app with the goal of helping to improve sleep health amongst a college undergraduate population. The phone app provides reminders and useful information, allows personalization of the features and interface, and provides feedback and goal tracking features. These aspects of the app were used to try and project expertise while still promoting similarity,facilitating self-monitoring, and providing reminders as they are defined within the context of BCSS. This app serves as the foundation for testing the robustness of BCSS and addressing the problem of poor sleep health among WPI undergraduates.
