Abstract

The problem of information fragmentation is especially acute for today's college students who manage and assimilate information in various forms while completing many of their academic tasks, and who must do so within the confines of standard software applications. The goal of this research is to provide students with a novel information assimilation and notetaking tool that helps them more efficiently manage their electronic information and overcome some of the fragmentation challenges they routinely experience. Our Global Information Gatherer prototype allows students to view, edit and store files of different types from within a single interface, and provides an integrated web browser and notetaking functionality.
