What does it do?

     • Records audio while you take notes
       •  That’s basically it



     • Why is this so handy for usability researchers?
       •  Capturing quotes and video


                        Rec/Pause/Stop                    Bookmark                                   Playback speed
                        - Control recording                - Mark the audio for later review          - Umm… playback speed
                        - Usefulness: 100%                 - Usefulness: 50%                          - Usefulness: 85%
                        - Start/stop sessions              - Prefer written bookmark                  - Good for fast talkers


Menu Controls                              Jump                                  Jump to position                  Volume
- Navigate the on-pen                       - Skip 10 seconds                    - Quasi-scrubber                   - Pen volume
menus                                       - Usefulness: 50%                    - Usefulness: 0%                  (not recording volume)
- Usefulness: 30%                           - Rarely listen from pen             - Prefer to click on text          - Usefulness: 100%
- Rarely use on-pen menus                                                                                           - Mute your pen!




                                                                                                                                     3
Notes on taking notes

There is
          Yesh: Hebrew
          for “there is”
- it’s just quicker




Finding
- Big star stands out when
skimming notes




Quote marker and scrubber
 - Prefer to not move my pen to the bottom of
the page to add a bookmark
 - Line creates your own scrubber for the quote




                                                  4
Other features

• Creates a “Pencast PDF”
 •  Writing follows the audio, just like in the LiveScribe software, but in a PDF



• Connects to Evernote (yay!) and Facebook (who cares?)
 •  Need a premium Evernote account to upload large files (boo!)
 •  Shares “Pencasts” on Facebook



• Obligatory iPhone & iPad app
 •  Used to view Pencasts, including those published by others




                                                                                    5
Challenges

• Well, you’ve all seen my handwriting now
 •  Not fun to spend more than a few minutes trying to discern a sentence



• Pen ink doesn’t last
 •  Refills are small, but readily available
 •  Only rollerball tips are available



• Have to write on the microdotted paper
 •  But, you can print your own




                                                                            6
