Last Meeting before Orals & Next Steps

Feedback

I have had my refreshing break and am now back to running in the thrilling thesis marathon! Below is a brief overview of feedback from my last meeting (On Feb 29th) with Denise, Scott and Martha:

  • Describe Priorities of interface
    • ie: TUI: gameplay, Community: motivator, GUI: collection space
  • List combinations of important actions
    • Actions could be the same throughout the process but change meaning because what has come before and after it
    • sets of actions should be pointed moments in the process
  • Storyboard/Sketch/Wireframe the interface and interactions
    • Focus on behaviors of interaction not form, ie: bristley vs. task completion etc
    • form increases desirability factor
    • form expresses tangible motivation
    • Hand sketches/lo-fi
    • What does it do, how does it work
  • Orals
    • Solid foundation
    • examples to prove/manifest ideology
    • key moments which led to other key moments
    • next steps
    • 30 minutes

Next Steps

This week I will be using “Designing Social Interfaces” as a guide, per Scott’s reference.Below you can see my list of “things to do” in one week, before Orals. Looks a little crazy but most things are broken down into smaller steps:

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT:
develop the sets of actions,
develop priorities of GUI interface and TUI interface,
wireframe the GUI & TUI interface,
create presentation of scenarios incorporating key moments of interaction with TUI/GUI/and overall system,
create nomenclature/language for system? (ie: buddy, task, goal, meeting, etc)

ORALS PRESENTATION:
revise gameplay map,
bring question up to par,
type out objectives and observations from studies,
outline presentation,
represent morphing of question in presentation,
create presentation with key points & next steps,

ADDITIONAL:
am i missing some sort of maps: overall purpose or relation to other tools etc?,
update bibliography?,
outline for writing?
