We today got together to organize work around preparation and writing of research papers. Our new research assistant Katrina is taking the greatest responsibility to keep us analyzing and reporting the research results from the last three or so years of work in the research group. We are working on the following papers (working titles):
Software as hypothesis – developing human-centered design research method through three design cases
Audio wiki for mobile communities – information systems for the rest of us
Design of LeMill – web community for finding, authoring and sharing learning resources
The first article is a formulation and conclusion of the design research method and practice we have been developing in the research group.
The second article is presenting new design direction for the MobilED project proposing that the audio wiki is probably more useful as an informal community information system rather than as an application for formal teaching and learning (for what it was originally designed for).
The third article is the first proper description of LeMill with explanation of principles behind it, design rationale and the process of designing it.
We are aiming to get these out in six coming months. We are targeting to some journals and some conferences. Can’t wait to get these out!
