LACKING CONTEXT Addressing the lack of context and meaning within databases dovetails with my Midpoint idea the best. By adding more specific research parameters (namely, by separating student projects by school, instructor and class) users can get to the most pertinent information faster. There are a number of online project indexes that separate work based on the program the student is in, Behance recently began developing more and more of these, but that solution doesn’t provide enough context. After filtering projects by school, the next logical step would be to filter by instructor and class, but for some reason this isn’t the direction Behance wanted to take things, focusing instead on keeping their site more about social media and the subjective and arbitrary rating of designer’s work.
