In User Centred Design, the integration of knowledge of users work practice, preferences etc. into the design process is crucial to success. For this reason, video recording has become a widespread tool for documenting user activities observed in field studies, usability tests and user workshops. To make sense of video recordings - though a rewarding experience - is time consuming and mostly left to experts. Even though developers may ask for expert advice on usability matters, chances are that… 
Exploring how user video supports design
TLDR
Based on recordings of designers working with video and transcripts of their conversations, it is shown how the immediate act of watching the video triggers a process of focusing, and how explaining what was seen and justifying why it is important leads participants to reflect on their points of focus.
Exploring how user video supports design Video
Video has become a popular tool for informing designers about the people who will use a new product, and the environment where that product will be used. However, despite the popularity of video, it
Toolkits, cards and games – a review of analogue tools for collaborative ideation
TLDR
A survey of analogue ideation tools within the design and HCI literatures, and within commercial practice, to help designers and design teams more fluently select, customise, critique, analyse and/or build tools to support collaborative designerly inquiry.
Creating engagement with old research videos
TLDR
The potentials of using old research footage to stimulate reflection, conversations and creativity by presenting it on pervasive screens to colleague designers and researchers are explored.
Talking about watching: Using the Video Card Game and wiki-web technology to engage IT students in developing observational skills
TLDR
A game format that is used in concert with wiki-web technology, to engage IT and Information Environments students in developing much sharper observational skills, and the quality of the resulting interaction themes indicates that this method fosters development of observational skills.
Collaborating for video: Using video to provoke performance in collaborative design teams
TLDR
The role of video in collaborative process- particularly how it determines the way people act when exposed to presenting to video and how it can be integrated into ongoing work process without being an activity in itself is investigated.
Playful Collaborative Exploration: New Research Practice in Participatory Design
Within the Participatory Design community as well as the Computer Supported Cooperative Work tradition, a lot of effort has been put into the question of letting field studies inform design. In this
User Centred Design Through the Keyhole: Video Design Cases
TLDR
A design case format capable of engaging design practitioners and design students in reflective dialog about their user centred design practice is developed, to present project team experience as an open resource for reflection and learning.
User Centred Design through the Keyhole: Video Design Case

Preserving Sequential Context: Developing Participatory Video Analysis Practice
TLDR
A modified version of the Video Card Game, adapted to involve primary school teachers in video analysis for design is introduced and it is suggested the approach enabled participants to leverage their domain knowledge in analytic tasks.

Replacing usability testing with user dialogue
TLDR
This article outlines four examples to show how the conventional usability-testing format is turned into a dialogue between users and designers, and how this has changed the conception of objectivity of usability testing.
Video mosaic: laying out time in a physical space
TLDR
Video Mosaic provides users with the ability to combine the best of both worlds: elements of a paper video storyboard are used as input to an on-line video editing system to take advantage of the best aspects of each.
Challenging Practice: an approach to Cooperative Analysis
TLDR
This book introduces an approach of using artifacts to trigger new understandings of current practice and it introduces dilemma games to challenge current practice by exposing it to some of its inherent dilemmas.
Interaction Analysis: Foundations and Practice
TLDR
Video technology has been vital in establishing Interaction Analysis, which depends on the technology of audiovisual recording for its primary records and on playback capability for their analysis.
Augmented reality: linking real and virtual worlds: a new paradigm for interacting with computers
TLDR
Instead of immersing people in an artificially-created virtual world, the goal is to augment objects in the physical world by enhancing them with a wealth of digital information and communication capabilities.
Design and technology for Collaborage: collaborative collages of information on physical walls
A Collaborage is a collaborative collage of physically represented information on a surface that is connected with electronic information, such as a physical In/Out board connected to a
A C.A.R.D. game for participatory task analysis and redesign: macroscopic complement to PICTIVE
TLDR
CARD provides a macroscopic complement to the more microscopic design mtivitix that are supported by tJrePICTIVE technique and uses the metaphor of a cd game as the vehicle for communication and collaboration among users, developers, and designers.
