New collaborative tools require new foundations.

  3. 3. PROJECT DECRIPTION PROJECT GOALS: •  Toolkit and open collaborative platform to enable users and companies to design, share and sell mobile applications or part of them. •  API aggregator / Internet of Things (IOT) infrastructure and interface PROJECT TEAMS: •  Management, Business, Core Tech and Design. •  We present the project from the prospective and work of the design group.
  4. 4. PROJECT DECRIPTION TASK:   •  The goal for the design group is to develop the touch point between the users an the Satin Platform (UI) •  Focus on the language used to construct functionalities: “How to enable lay person to program?” •  Make sense not teach how to program  
  5. 5. PROJECT DECRIPTION SATIN EDITOR STRUCUTURE: <  >   Backend compiler Mark Up Language Frontend editor UI
  6. 6. PROJECT DECRIPTION PROCESS: •  User Centered approach •  Different interaction styles prototyped and tested •  Low Fi - Hi fi prototypes testing to what extent people could create functionalities with these interfaces. •  Detailed account of the user centered process and different versions of the prototypes developed > see paper

  8. 8. USER TEST RESULTS UI DESIGN / HOW TO MAKE = •  We met the goal of creating a visual language with which people could construct functionalities and aggregate different data sources. •  When asked “what did you do?” users were able to say: “I made an app to monitor and control my energy consumption remotely and share my result with friends”
  9. 9. USER TEST RESULTS SATIN PLATFORM / WHY TO MAKE •  Users unable to see advantages in crafting and co-creating their apps vs. buy/download existing ones provided by a company or an expert programmer. •  People found difficult to project themselves in a scenario where information is retrievable from any artifact or web service at any time. •  Users not able to come out with tailored solutions
  10. 10. REFLECTIONS FROM: ABSTRACT TO CONCRETE TO: CONCRETE TO ABSTRACT
  11. 11. REFLECTIONS Mismatch between concepts and foundations behind the Satin project and the foundations required by its deliverables: WORK PRACTICES INFORMATION FORMAT Innovative disruptive intentions vs. Available information is top down impersonal, established frameworks and practice anytime, anywhere i.e. cognitivist approach
  12. 12. CONCLUSIONS LIMITS OF CURRENT INFRASTRUCUTURES In supporting design of collaborative tools and user innovation PEOPLE EXPERIENCE INDIRECT NEED OF TOOL FOCUS ON CONTENT GENERATION/CURATION: contextualized and situated Information as a way to achieve meaning creation and user centeredness NEW FOUNDATIONS AND WORK PRACTICES: holistic stance based on day-to-day experience
