Experiences from Employing Evernote as a Tool for Documenting Collaborative Design Processes

Abstract

In this paper we report from a case study investigating the use of digital tools for documenting collaborative design processes. We employed the note-taking system Evernote in interaction design projects with six teams of students over a period of four months. By observing the use and appropriation of the tool and by questioning participants we strived toward understanding collaborative documentation and communication activities in more detail. Our experiences show that the core functionality of such tools seems adequate for most documentation tasks, but improvements seem necessary regarding support for more informal information management, visualization as well as communication and collaboration.
