Morphological Matrices as a Tool for Crowdsourced Ideation

  title={Morphological Matrices as a Tool for Crowdsourced Ideation},
  author={Jonas Oppenlaender},
Designing a novel product is a difficult task not well suited for non-expert crowd workers. In this work-in-progress paper, we first motivate why the design of persuasive products is an interesting context for studying creativity and the creative leap. We then present a pilot study on the crowdsourced design of persuasive products. The pilot study motivated our subsequent feasibility study on the use of morphological matrices as a tool for crowdsourced ideation and product design. Given the… 

Figures from this paper


Creativity on Paid Crowdsourcing Platforms
This paper reveals clear differences between the workers on the platforms in both preferences and prior experience with creative work, and contributes the first extensive worker-oriented study of creative work on paid crowdsourcing platforms.
Design recommendations for augmenting creative tasks with computational priming
This work investigates the use of roles in stimulating the creativity of individuals in two complementary studies, and highlights that adopting roles can help when one runs out of ideas, but this is not a silver bullet for improving divergent thinking.
DC2S2: Designing Crowd-powered Creativity Support Systems
This workshop brainstorm new crowdsourcing systems and concepts for supporting creativity, by bringing together researchers and industry professionals in a full-day workshop.
Supporting Creative Workers with Crowdsourced Feedback
This dissertation explores how creative workers can be assisted in evaluating this crowdsourced feedback and qualitatively explored and studied this issue in three different feedback systems.
Almost an Expert: The Effects of Rubrics and Expertise on Perceived Value of Crowdsourced Design Critiques
An experiment with a 2x2 factorial design found that rubrics helped novice workers provide feedback that was rated nearly as valuable as expert feedback.
Crowdsourcing user studies with Mechanical Turk
Although micro-task markets have great potential for rapidly collecting user measurements at low costs, it is found that special care is needed in formulating tasks in order to harness the capabilities of the approach.
Understanding Malicious Behavior in Crowdsourcing Platforms: The Case of Online Surveys
The prevalent malicious activity on crowdsourcing platforms is analyzed and different types of workers in the crowd are defined, a method to measure malicious activity is proposed, and guidelines for the efficient design of crowdsourced surveys are presented.
Aesthetic of Friction for Exercising Motivation: a Prototyping Journey
This Research-through-Design project designed an interactive shrinking hanger, that implements key principles of the Aesthetic of Friction, to encourage exercise motivation and reflect on how to implement friction in design.

A new conceptual design approach for overcoming the flaws of functional decomposition and morphology
The fundamental logic and the main tools that constitute the groundings of the proposed new conceptual design approach that can overcome the flaws of FDM are presented.
