Video in applied cognitive research for human-centered design Renate J. Roske-Hofstrand October 1989 ACM SIGCHI Bulletin, Volume 21 Issue 2 Publisher: ACM Press Full text available: pdf(214.66 KB) {nid 3JGV} "Video constitutes one of the most direct and contextually rich means for capturing observable behavior in human-computer interaction. However, a major shortfall of this type of visual medium lies in its failure to directly capture those aspects of user behavior that can predictably be associated with human cognition. Goal-directed cognitive user processes such as those that occur in problem-solving, decision-making, and planning activities are by their nature not subject to recording on camera."    (3JH8)

Reminder Notes on How to Communicate Your Message (Value) - how to build a "marketing" strategy    (3O81)

  1. Value - Qualities useful for others - determining worth through assessment - report benefits - Outcome - Impact - Influence - Significance = Better Understanding Build messages that your target can relate to using the same vocabulary and terms that others can relate to    (3JHA)
  2. User focus is more important than ever - write a mission statement (this is essential - it should tie you into the greater scheme) - write how you contribute to your organization - do periodic needs assessment of the customer - --Example: Just in time processes; marketing needs - customized interfaces - selective information dissemination services etc.    (3JHB)
  3. Develop a culture of assessment - prioritize outcomes (any benefit to people, processes or positive changes)- describe your value and make decisions!    (3JHC)
