Collaborative Media

The course addresses the role of interaction design for collaborative media, including design of innovative media “texts” as well as designing for collaboration and community. We work on key design elements in designing for prosumers, designing participatory media and designing grassroots media. A lot of work done focuses on intervention- and community-oriented design methods and techniques such as envisioning, mashups, social interventions, community-based participation and co-determination, and perpetual-beta development approaches.
