Information seeking behavior of art and design students on the Web
We conducted a psychological experiment
in order to research the information seeking
behavior of art and design students on the Web.
We divided students into four groups by domain
knowledge and Web usage experiences. In the
experiment we directed them to plan one day art
tour for a senior high school student by browsing
the Web pages. Then we told them to freely write
their comments about the relevance and quality
of the Web pages they looked at. We chose the key
words from their responses by text mining method
and analyzed them by using a cluster analysis.
We found four clusters corresponding the four
student groups and examined their characteristics
by network analysis of their key words.
