Fourth meeting and paper prototyping

On the fourth meeting we focused on two methods that come after scenario-based design: user stories and paper prototypes. Presentations and links to additional readings are here:

In the next meeting we are going to test the paper prototypes of your systems. Developing a complete paper prototype takes too much time, therefore you should think about three testing tasks and compose only these user stories and paper prototype elements that are required for completing these three testing tasks. The assignments for the next time are specified here:

Our next meeting will take place again in T-412 on Thursday 27.03 at 12.00-15.00. We are going to spend the whole meeting on testing paper prototypes. For individual assignment 3 each one of you has to test paper prototype from one group. I want to test paper prototypes from all groups. This means, that each paper prototype will be tested by 3 or 4 people. For the testing the group needs three persons (one facilitating the testing, second acting as a computer and third person recording the session). So smaller groups would need helping hands from other groups.


Scenarios are waiting for your comments

Almost all groups have completed their scenarios. I will write a one blog post that contains links to all scenarios. As an individual assignment 2 each one of you has to choose one groups and give feedback to their scenarios. Please choose groups so that every project will get some feedback.

Most of the groups managed to write quite good scenarios. I will try to write detailed comments under your scenarios in the coming days. One comment for several groups: the title of the scenario is also important. Readers should get basic idea immediately from reading the title. Scenarios from Project ESTER and Dippler learning analytics are examples of good titles.

Please try to give feedback to the scenarios in the coming days. Then groups can use your feedback for writing the summary and creating the concept map.
