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… Expand
Exploring how user video supports design
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, itExpand
Creating engagement with old research videos
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. Expand
Talking about watching: Using the Video Card Game and wiki-web technology to engage IT students in developing observational skills
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. Expand
Collaborating for video: Using video to provoke performance in collaborative design teams
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. Expand
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 thisExpand
User Centred Design Through the Keyhole: Video Design Cases
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. Expand
User Centred Design through the Keyhole: Video Design Case
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. Expand
Preserving Sequential Context: Developing Participatory Video Analysis Practice
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. Expand
Developing ideation cards to support the design of mixed reality games
This thesis describes the development of the Mixed Reality Game Cards and uses the insights gained from this process to reflect on ideation cards as design tools in general, expanding the authors' understanding of them. Expand


Replacing usability testing with user dialogue
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. Expand
Video mosaic: laying out time in a physical space
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. Expand
Challenging Practice: an approach to Cooperative Analysis
Cooperative Analysis takes as its starting point the tradition of user-involvement in system development in Scandinavia, especially cooperative design. It points to the mismatch in this traditionExpand
Interaction Analysis: Foundations and Practice
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. Expand
A C.A.R.D. game for participatory task analysis and redesign: macroscopic complement to PICTIVE
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. Expand
Augmented reality: linking real and virtual worlds: a new paradigm for interacting with computers
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. Expand
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 aExpand
