Week 6: Informances

This week we developed 3 informances - high level outlines of scenarios we may want to design for.

Creating detailed informances allowed us to place our personas in actual real life situations to help us better understand and analysis their problems. We were also able to explore possible problems or issues that may arise in the social group. For example, members unable to attend a meeting, and updating the absent members what was missed. The informances allowed us to start brainstorming possible design prototypes that would address the youth group’s needs. If it was possible, we would have liked to have been able to create informance videos instead of stills with narration. There was some sound distortion when played in tutorial but when played on school computers and computers at home, there was no audio problem. Changing the pitch in FinalCutPro may have influenced the possibility of distortion; we wanted to have a male voice and a female voice in our film. But because we weren’t able to find male voices, we had to improvise.
