October 5/6 Project Participant Meeting: Background

The Variations on Video Planning Grant planning grant specified this meeting as one of it's key activities:


Participants were given a pre-meeting reading list and a usage scenario assignment (doc). The initial meeting agenda was publicly posted.


Slides PDFs of slides presented at the meeting are linked below. For a more up-to-date version of some of these slides, along with a slide-based summary of the meeting, review the slides from our EDUCAUSE 2010 presentation (PDF).

Usage Scenario Discussions

Scenarios available for review as PDF files are:

Discussions around the usage scenarios were used to generate a lists of user-centered requirements. This list serves as an initial, unprioritized collection of usage-grounded requirements. The document also includes a list of possible requirements that didn't emerge from our scenarios as well as a list of product concept alternatives that offer focus for a subset of the requirements.


At dinner the first night of the meetings, we held a working dinner where three tables each had moderated discussion of a particular topic. Notes from these discussions are available.
