Piloting participatory designing within a collaborative learning environment.
The purpose of the study was to analyze the nature of virtual designing in a collaborative learning Collaborative learning is an umbrella term for a variety of approaches in education that involve joint intellectual effort by students or students and teachers. Collaborative learning refers to methodologies and environments in which learners engage in a common task in which each environment (Future Learning Environment, FLE FLE Français Langue Étrangère

The problem addressed in the study was to analyze how the teacher's and users' participation supports the collaborative design process undertaken by students working in the networked learning environment. The methods of social network analysis were applied to study interaction between the students, teacher, and the users in the FLE2 database. Qualitative content analysis was applied to analyze the design thinking, design activities, and interaction within the teams. The results indicated that the users took the roles of codesigners by providing new information concerning design context and by analyzing design elements, where-as the teacher took the role of organizer in structuring students' process of working with FLE2 and their collaborative designing.
The present study focuses on analyzing university students' collaborative designing may be supported by an environment for computer-supported collaborative learning Computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) is a research topic on supporting collaborative learning with the help of computers. It is related to Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). CSCL cuts across research in psychology, computer science, and education. (CSCL CSCL Computer Supported Cooperative Learning ) and how participatory designing may be applied in an educational context. The study examines university students' collaborative design process as it occurred in a complex and authentic design task--designing EuroCSCL 2001 conference bags--and explores how students worked in the virtual design environment to jointly advance their design knowledge, obtaining and applying knowledge provided by avid AVID Cardiology A clinical trial–Antiarrhythmics Versus Implantable Defibrillators that compared the effect of implantable defibrillators vs the best medical therapy–antiarrhythmics for survivors of MI or those with nonsustained ventricular tachycardia conference-goers about their previous experiences of the conference bags.

The core curriculum in any design field consists of working in design studios. Studio-based instruction is considered to be the axis of architectural education (Akin AKIN American Kurdish Information Network , 2002; Kvan, 2001; Schon, 1987). Design studio courses provide ample opportunities to develop higher-level design competencies through conducting projects that simulate simulate - simulation "real world" design scenarios.

A teacher is needed to structure the collaborative efforts and provide advice for the students in virtual design studios, just as in traditional ones. Modeling and demonstration by the teacher are known to be crucial in facilitating the development of students' design expertise.

The design of a successful product is dependent upon incorporating information from a number of knowledge domains; it must perform at a functional level, meet aesthetic criteria, be economically produced, and moreover, it should be safe. Participatory design emphasizes the importance of acquiring relevant information from the end user of the product and ensuring that the product manifests the end user's viewpoint. The designer has to obtain knowledge of users and their activity, and thus the design project should try to include users as a part of the project team from the very beginning (Popovic, 1999).
Besides users' roles, teachers' roles have not been analyzed closely. According to Wells (2000), teachers--in general--may be either coinquirers or organizers : Top - 0–9 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
The emergence of computer-supported learning environments promises to provide new resources for participatory design. A fundamental aspect of these environments is to provide tools for progressive discourse interaction between the designers and users. The new collaborative technology allows design thinking to be more explicit and easier to access by one's fellow designers, and it also enables participating designers to share their ideas and to construct a joint understanding of the design problem and its possible solutions. However, it is not easy to make thinking visible, share, and build ideas with others. The use of collaborative technology may fail due to pedagogical, technological, or organizational obstacles (Lipponen, 1999; Sikkel, Gommer, & van der Veen, 2001). Collaborative technology enables the users to rely on socially distributed intellectual resources embedded in the learning community while conducting various projects (Maher et al., 2000; Seitamaa-Hakkarainen, Lahti, Muukkonen, & Hakkarainen, 2000). A central aspect of collaborative knowledge building is to create shared knowledge objects, such as ideas or product designs, to engage in an intensive synchronous Refers to events that are synchronized, or coordinated, in time. For example, the interval between transmitting A and B is the same as between B and C, and completing the current operation before the next one is started are considered synchronous operations.

To participate in expert-like processes of collaborative designing, the participants' activities need to be structured and scaffolded in many ways. Figure 1 schematically sche·mat·ic

The purpose of the model is more to illustrate essential aspects of collaborative designing than to provide a fixed or inflexible design framework. However, this model has been our framework, as educators, for providing cognitive scaffolding that encourages students to engage in expert-like designing in computer-supported collaborative work.

The present study relies on a web-based environment, the Future Learning Environment (FLE2, an open source version of a new generation FLE software is available at http://fle3.uiah.fi), which is a networked learning environment providing a distributed database A database physically stored in two or more computer systems. Although geographically dispersed, a distributed database system manages and controls the entire database as a single collection of data. designed to support collaborative designing (Leinonen, Mielonen, Seitamaa-Hakkarainen, Muukkonen, & Hakkarainen, 1999). The FLE system was developed by the Media Laboratory, University of Art and Design Helsinki University of Art and Design Helsinki (Taideteollinen korkeakoulu in Finnish) is the largest art university in the Nordic countries. It was founded in 1871. Media Centre Lume - the National Research and Development Center of audiovisual media - is also located in the in collaboration with the Department of Psychology, University of Helsinki The University of Helsinki is not to be confused with the Helsinki University of Technology.
The University of Helsinki (Finnish: Helsingin yliopisto, Swedish: Helsingfors universitet . The FLE2 provides tools for collaborative designing, so that multiple actors can asynchronously work and communicate through discourse and visual representations in the virtual learning environment. The users are able to access the FLE2-environment from any Internet-linked computer, and they are able to work with the FLE2 database using their standard office applications, to produce documents in various formats, such as text, graphics, video, or WWW-links. The FLE2-environment consists of several modules that facilitate collaborative building of knowledge and aid the design process, and it provides "thinking tools" for organizing and structuring these processes. The system provides tools for discussing ongoing design processes as well as sharing concepts and visual design ideas. The main modules of the FLE2 include the Virtual WebTop (1) Using a Web browser as the desktop interface in a client machine.
(2) A specification from Sun, IBM and Oracle for a common interface for Java-based network computers. , the Knowledge Building Module and the Library. Figure 2 presents the Virtual Web Top.
[FIGURE 2 OMITTED]
The Virtual WebTop refers to a personal adjustable display window, which is automatically opened as the user logs onto the system. The Virtual WebTop contains graphical links, represented by folders, which give information about the course attended, and provide links to the Virtual WebTops of the other participants of the group. The Virtual WebTop is a place for the user to store the documents created by standard office applications in various formats. In the background of the Virtual WebTop is a metaphor of an open office in which one can go to work at any desk, observe what other people are working on, and leave your own notes. Accordingly, the Virtual WebTop allows a student to visit the WebTops of other students or teachers in the same course.
The Knowledge Building (KB) Module provides a shared space Shared space is a traffic engineering philosophy pioneered by the Dutch traffic engineer Hans Monderman. The approach relies on the principle that road users' behaviour is more likely to be affected by the street environment and design than by the traditional deployment of measures for working together to solve problems and develop ideas and thoughts generated by the users. All KB messages within a project are posted to the shared space, and are visible as lists of messages; the messages produced to the database can include attached files such as a text, graphics, video or WWW-links. In the conceptual phase of designing, the module supports generation, externalization The ability to easily connect to and transfer information between business partners.

In this study, the role of collaborative technology in supporting user participation in the design process is examined by reporting results from an experiment in using FLE2 in a university-level design course. The problem addressed was to analyze how the teacher's and users' participation supports the collaborative design process undertaken by students working in the networked learning environment.

The participants of the study were students in the first year of a training program for textile teachers at the university level. They worked in six design teams, consisting of four students in each team. Each team had its own named "user" (i.e., an avid conference goer). The students were instructed to intensively collaborate within their own design team and to search for deepening knowledge from the users of the product. There were three tutors who helped students become accustomed to using the FLE2-environment, and one of them sent messages to the FLE2. One and the same teacher (the second author) gave all lectures and participated in the FLE2-environment. During the project, the students received some background information, such as a design brief, EuroCSCL Conference WWW WWW or W3: see World Wide Web.

The "www-dot" prefix on Web addresses is widely used to provide a recognizable way of identifying a Web site. pages and research articles concerning participatory design in general. Moreover, pictures and examples products of the various kinds of conference bags were included in the FLE2-course information context.
The present study followed a method of design-studio teaching that had the following structure: a statement of the design problem and definition of the design context in the form of a brief, the understanding of the brief, and explorations of the users' needs, presentation of the design ideas verbally or graphically and reviews of proposals. The course consisted of weekly lectures, face-to-face (jargon, chat) face-to-face - (F2F, IRL) Used to describe personal interaction in real life as opposed to via some digital or electronic communications medium. design sessions during the lectures, and individual/ team designing in the FLE2-environment between the lectures (Table 1). The teacher expected the virtual design studio to support teamwork outside the lectures and increase users' possibilities to actively participate in the students' design processes. All users lived far away from the course setting (Savonlinna). This study was based on an analysis of the participants' productions posted to FLE2's database. The face-to-face videotaped interactions from two design teams and the questionnaires about students' attitudes and use of the FLE2-environment will be reported elsewhere.
The students received the design task in the second lecture, and at that time they were introduced to using the FLE2-environment. They were informed that the productions of each whole group, rather than the contributions of individual students would be assessed. To provide feedback about functional aspects of the proposed conference bags, the students' designs were evaluated twice: (a) the students' visual ideas were evaluated by the team of users and the teacher, and (b) the prototypes were evaluated by the jury. The students also engaged in technical designing and tested their technical solutions in the textile laboratory.
Methods of Data Analysis
The present study investigates aspects of teacher's and users' roles in a participatory design process. We were interested in exploring how teacher and users worked in the virtual design environment to jointly advance students' design process. The following results are based on a qualitative analysis Qualitative Analysis

The methods of social network analysis were applied to study interaction between the students, teacher, and the users in the FLE2 database. A qualitative content analysis was carried out by analyzing the design thinking, activities, and interaction between the students', teacher's, and the users' statements posted to that database.
Analysis 1: Social Interaction in Networked Designing
Methods based on social network analysis (Scott, 1991) were used to study participants' social position in the collaborative design process. The same methods have been used in other studies to analyze patterns of social interaction in CSCL (e.g., Palonen & Hakkarainen, 2000). The participants' positions in the networked discussions were analyzed using Freeman's degree as a centrality measure. Cognitive centrality describes the importance or isolation of a member in the communication network. The degrees were counted from the number of messages that the participants sent to others (outdegree) or received from others (indegree) in FLE2. Cognitive centrality of the participants was further assessed by using Freeman's "betweenness" value that indicates the participant's position in mediating knowledge flow within the community (Borgatti, Everett Everett.

The measure of density was used to evaluate the general level of interaction in the design teams. Density is a simple way to measure a network: the more actors that have relationships with one another, the denser will be the network (Scott, 1991, p. 74); hence it indicates, here, a measure of the intensity of interaction among the participants. Density was computed from a dichotomized matrix of KB messages (the participants had or had not sent or received messages to each other, the frequency of messages did not matter) and, thus, it could vary from 0 to 1. The calculation of density of the design teams took account of all participants' contributions. All social networked analyses were performed using the UCINET program (Borgatti, et al., 1999).
Analysis 2: Participants' Role in Design Process
To analyze the design process in FLE2, the investigators considered students', teachers's, and users' design thinking, design activities, and their exchange of information. The knowledge-building messages posted to the database were segmented into propositions representing one main idea (Chi, 1997). All text in each message was first divided into segments, each representing a separate idea. Two independent researchers were used to assess inter-coder reliability of the segmentation. To analyze the reliability of segmentation, an independent coder classified approximately 15% of messages. The inter-coder reliability of segmentation was .85, indicating that the reliability of segmentation was satisfactory.
The qualitative content analysis was based on the classification that was developed in our earlier study, which analyzed university students' collaborative design process (Seitamaa-Hakkarainen, et al., 2000). The classification schema comprises the following categories: (a) design thinking, (b) design activity, (c) co-authoring, and (d) information exchange. A summary of our classification schemata is presented in Figure 4.
[FIGURE 4 OMITTED]
The design-thinking category involves specifying (a) design context, (b) working idea, (c) new information, (d) comment, and (e) metacomment. Each statement was considered to represent just one of these subcategories in terms of its dominant content. How these components succeed and relate to each other may be explained as follows: By specifying design context the design problem was determined (for example: Does anyone know about research conferences and conference bags?). Design progressed by articulating and elaborating working ideas through which the final design emerged (I have been sketching sketch
1. A hasty or undetailed drawing or painting often made as a preliminary study.
2. A brief general account or presentation; an outline.
a. a green conference bag. You find it in the attachment). The participants also searched for and provided new information concerning design context or design elements (I interviewed one researcher who has participated many conferences and here comes what he was thinking about conference bags). During the design process, participants commented on each other's ideas and information. Through metacomments, participants assessed whether the design process was progressing in the desired direction, and appropriate methods were being used; they considered how the design task was shared, and accomplishments of members of the design team (Hi, we have to now discuss what kind of bags we are going to design. Please make your comment as soon as possible so that we can go on).
The present investigators used the second category, design activity, to assess the modes of participating in problem solving problem solving

These subcategories were easily identified in the design statements. The variable had four discrete values according to whether there was (a) analyzing, (b) proposing, (c) evaluating, and/or and/or
Used to indicate that either or both of the items connected by it are involved.
Usage Note: And/or is widely used in legal and business writing. (d) organizing in the process. Each statement was considered to represent just one of these subcategories. Analyzing statements generated information (e.g., design constraint Constraint

If n and m are the numbers of the natural and actual degrees of freedom, the difference n - m is the number of constraints. or design elements) that refined the design problem. Proposing refers to an active process of finding a solution for the design or stating new ideas "New Ideas" is the debut single by Scottish New Wave/Indie Rock act The Dykeenies. It was first released as a Double A-side with "Will It Happen Tonight?" on July 17, 2006. The band also recorded a video for the track. . Evaluating statements refers to assessment of a design situation or solutions made with respect to particular design elements or sketches. Organizing the process refers to statements that helped the team to regulate the socially shared process of designing. In previous studies, the present investigators were particularly interested in how the students organized their collaborative activities during the design process. The process organization variable represented statements that helped the team to regulate the socially shared process of designing. These included, for instance, statements that referred to organizing of design teams' meetings, sharing of tasks between team members, making joint decisions, and practices of working within FLE2. The previous study (Lahti, et al., 2001) illustrated that the relative proportion of statements that focused on organizing the team members' joint activities and efforts of collaborative designing (process organization) made sense as an indicator of the intensity of collaboration.
The third category, coauthoring, covered only KB messages produced by the students. In analyzing students' notes, we recognized that sometimes they produced coauthored notes. The subcategories were identified in the design statements as follows: (a) one student produced idea, (b) part-of-group co-produced idea, and (c) group-together produced idea.
The present investigators used the fourth category, information exchange, to assess the content of interaction between teacher, users, and students. This category became very finely graded and comprised the following aspects: (a) a student asks user's and teacher's experience, (b) a student asks user's and teacher's feedback, (c) a student asks team members' feedback, (d) a user or teacher provides his or her own experience, (e) a user or teacher provides feedback, (f) a student refers to outsider Outsider often refers to one identified as on the periphery of social norms, one living or working apart from mainstream society, or one observing a group from the outside, as used in:

Analysis 1: Social Interaction in Networked Designing
The entire database consisted of 211 knowledge-building messages. The students posted 149 messages, on average 6.2 messages per student (minimum was 0, maximum 26 messages) to FLE2's database during the course. The teacher posted 35 messages, and users posted 27 messages. Team members' activities and users' participation varied considerably from one team to another (Table 2). The teacher and users' centrality in the design process was analyzed as previously described. The analysis indicated that the participants' social network had a relatively centralized cen·tral·ize

1. To draw into or toward a center; consolidate.
2. structure (92% in the case of sent, and 82% in the case of received messages). The teacher's extremely high betweenness value indicates that she was mediating information exchange between the students, their teams, and the users. A main part of virtual design activity took place within the design teams, and students generally did not actively comment on design process across the teams.
Table 2 reveals the teams' differing patterns of participating in virtual designing. Team 4 appeared to be the most productive in posting KB messages, and the number of their sent and received messages was higher than those of other teams. Team 3 did not participate in virtual designing as actively as the other teams. An examination of the data indicated, further, that only some of the students and users participated intensively in the design process.
The analysis indicated that the students' network of interaction was not very dense; specifically, 0.22 (SD--0.86) for symmetrized data (direction of commenting ignored). In the case of the asymmetric A difference between two opposing modes. It typically refers to a speed disparity. For example, in asymmetric operations, it takes longer to compress and encrypt data than to decompress and decrypt it. Contrast with symmetric. See asymmetric compression and public key cryptography. graph based both on sent and received comments, the measure was 0.16 (SD=0.74) of the possible ties. Detailed analyses indicated that the teacher distributed her coaching efforts equally across design teams.
The figures might give an impression of a generally shallow level of participation. Yet one should take into consideration that much activity could have taken place outside of the FLE2-environment. In many cases, a few students on the team appeared to take responsibility for organizing the virtual design process and interacting with the teacher and the users, whereas the others were more active in design processes that took place outside of the FLE2-environment.
Analysis 2: Participants' Role in Design Process
To analyze the design process in FLE2 the present investigators analyzed the teacher's, users', and students' design thinking, design activities, coauthoring, and exchange of information. Teams posted 211 knowledge-building messages in all, consisting of 762 design statements (both the teacher's and users' statements were included this analysis).

Table 3 presents the general frequencies and proportions of students', the teacher's and users' design-thinking statements. There appeared to be significant differences in such statements between students, teacher, and users. Table 3 shows how each group emphasized different subcategories during the design course. The frequency distributions of design-thinking statements across students, teacher and users differed from each other in a statistically significant way (df=8; [chi square chi square (kī),
n a nonparametric statistic used with discrete data in the form of frequency count (nominal data) or percentages or proportions that can be reduced to frequencies. ]=127.5; p<.001). To examine whether or not the observed frequencies in each cell deviated from what might be expected by chance alone, the present investigators carried out cell-specific exact tests (Bergman & El-Khouri, 1987). The results indicated that the students provided most of the working ideas (f=231; 42%). This was in accordance Accordance is Bible Study Software for Macintosh developed by OakTree Software, Inc.

self design process. The users emphasized new information (f=55; 50%) considerably more often than the others. The teacher appeared to provide more comments (f=35; 33%) and metacomments (f=25; 24%) than did the other participants. In general, through metacomments the participants assessed whether the design process was progressing in the desired direction and how people should proceed in the task.
Table 4 presents the general frequency distribution of students', teacher's, and users' design-activity statements. Design-activity statements appeared to differ significantly between the groups (df=6; [chi square]=85.7, p < .001). The users appeared to emphasize the analyses of design context (f=45; 41%), whereas the teacher did not focus on the analyzing stage (f=13; 12%). Instead, the teacher appeared to emphasis of the organizing the students' design process (f=50; 47%). In students' design activity statements, approximately 21% (f=113) were process organizing statements. The students proposed numerous design ideas (f=211; 39%), but they did not often evaluate these ideas (f=72; 13%).
The further analysis indicated that the students co-authored several KB messages. Approximately 71% of the students' ideas were produced by one student, 9% of the ideas were written in pairs, and 20% of ideas were posted on behalf of all team members. In order to analyze more closely the interaction patterns between the students, teacher, and the users, the present authors analyzed the categories of information exchange. Table 5 presents frequencies and proportions of the information exchange.
Table 5 illustrates that there appeared to be significant differences between the teams' designing in respect to how they used information and acquired knowledge and feedback from the users. Teams 1, 2, and 6 received most of the statements representing users' experience during their designing. In the case of Team 2, the user or teacher gave also feedback about the students' ideas more often (f=31; 18%) than in the other cases. Team 1 acquired much more information from the users outside the present network environment by interviewing some other conference goers (f=24; 20%). Team 1 produced design ideas, but they did not ask for any direct feedback from the user or fellow team members.
These series of excerpts illustrate how the students in Team 1 acquired outsider user information and how their user provided new facts about this particular conference. In assessing designs of the participating students, many users emphasized how a good conference bag could be used for many purposes afterwards af·ter·ward also af·ter·wards

Adv. 1. . It could, for instance, not only function in other academic situations, but also serve a participant who is going on a picnic or to beach for swimming. The latter series of excerpts shows clearly how the students of Team 2 actively produced sketches and asked for feedback, which they also got from both the teacher and the user. An evaluation of the quality of students' design took place at the end of the project; the jury found Team 2's conference bag to be the best, whereas Team 1's conference bag was considered to be the least satisfactory.
The present investigators examined how the FLE2-environment supported collaborative designing through organizing a participatory design course in which teams of first-year textile-teaching students solved an authentic and complex design task--designing a conference bag for those attending the EuroCSCL conference. The students collaborated in sharing their design knowledge and searching for new information provided by the users, who were active conference goers and who volunteered for this study. In general, the qualitative content analysis of the students' productions posted to FLE2's database indicated that the knowledge produced by the students represented the prototypical elements of design process revealed in previous studies (e.g., Seitamaa-Hakkarainen, et al., 2000). Accordingly, the students analyzed the design context; they generated their solutions through a sustained process of developing and testing design ideas, and evaluated them.
However, some crucial limitations of the study should be taken into consideration in assessing the role of FLE2. First, FLE2 was used most effectively during weeks 2 to 9, but not any further during the stage of actually manufacturing the prototype. Second, working within the FLE2-environment appeared to involve the main part of the reflective Refers to light hitting an opaque surface such as a printed page or mirror and bouncing back. See reflective media and reflective LCD. aspects of designing whereas work time outside the system was dominated by practical activities needed for doing the designing. Third, the students also had the possibility to monitor the FLE2 without actively contributing to the database. It was not, however, possible to analyze the intensity of students' reading of KB messages because FLE2 did not provide any tracking data.
Previous studies (Kvan, et al., 1999; Seitamaa-Hakkarainen, et al. 2001) have indicated that there are two important aspects of designing that virtual design environments may scaffold scaffold

In the same way, in this study the students defined the design context actively. Moreover, the users' important contributions to the scaffolds of students' design process became apparent; the users provided a lot of new information concerning the design context. Especially, in the case of Team 2's design process, the user directly provided her own experiences and feedback to the students about the latter's solutions. Students of Team 1 also acquired outsider user experiences but did not rely on interaction with their named user while testing their design ideas.
The teacher's role became that of organizer of the collaborative design process. It is evident that the teacher is needed to structure the collaborative efforts and provide advice for the students in virtual design studios, just as in traditional ones. Some of the teams took more responsibility of their design process whereas some of them organized their process only partially in FLE2. In Team 2's design process, the teacher and user were more involved in the students' designing since they were actively invited to the discussion of the relative merits of solutions. The user and teacher became design partners with the students even if they did not directly propose new solutions or sketches. Our conclusion is that there is some evidence of participatory designing in Team 2's activities.
These results indicate that the virtual design environment may support the design process, especially during the stages of problem structuring and visual designing. It appears to us that the cognitive scaffolding of expert-like designing encouraged and provided conceptual tools for the students to reflect on their own design thinking, and that participatory designing (i.e., including the user as a designer's partner) is possible to arrange in the FLE2-environment. There are limitations to these findings. Since the study involved intensive investigation of a small number of participants, the data do not support the drawing of comparative conclusions; in particular there is no direct evidence permitting the assessment of the degree to which students' performance in this design task may have been better than in some alternative context.

The use of collaborative environments appears to be most productive in courses that require collaboration, knowledge sharing, or exchange of visual materials.

These results suggest that collaborative technology may provide new tools for students to share important aspects of their design thinking. An essential aim of the present study was to facilitate direct student-expert partnership, that is, provide the students with access to authentic users' knowledge so that the student designers might apply it. In the present case, however, the activity of the user also varied; either the students did not ask the active user's contribution, or the volunteer users did not have enough time to participate in the virtual design process. As the present investigators continue with the FLE-project, they will explore possibilities of facilitating more intensive and online interaction between students and experts, so that the students learn to work productively with customers from the very beginning of their projects. It might be important to improve the participants' awareness of what is going on within a networked learning environment (e.g., setting up a notification system A modern notification system is a combination of software and hardware that provides a means of delivering a message to a set of recipients. For example, notification systems can send an e-mail when a new topic has been added to Wikipedia. that transmits information about students' activities to the experts), so that very busy experts could follow what students are doing and provide timely feedback for them (Jermann, Soller, & Muehlenbrock, 2001). To conclude, it appears to be profitable to engage experts more closely in knowledge-building discourse with the students.

Table 6 Design Interaction Between the Students, Teacher, and the Users Student Elaine "I was asking something" Deepening Knowledge 2000-10-10 Hi! I had an "interview" with one conference visitor, who gave me some ideas and requests. He thought that briefcase shaped bags that had a shoulder strap in addition to handles were among the best ones he had been using. He had also been satisfied with their subdued colors. Anyway, he was not that sure if we should also have subdued colors after I told him something about this particular conference. I think that we should emphasize it a bit, so that even an outsider can recognize what it was meant for. As an improvement, he suggested carefully chosen closing mechanisms. The cover is usually fastened with a clip with opens easily by itself. The inside pockets lose their contents easily because they cannot be closed at all. He thought that a zipper would be the best solution. (A costly one, maybe). He had one more idea, a pocket for passport. One has to carry it quite often. Student Theresa "I was asking ..." Comment 2000-10-29/ was asking a friend of mine what kind of bag it should be. The answer was that there must be no pockets inside. Putting folders into the bag is difficult if there are extra pockets. The bag must be big enough for a big folder. There is usually a separate briefcase for the laptop. Pockets outside are good (for passport, mobile phone etc.). Student Elaine "Note" Problem 2000-11-01 In the briefing, it was said the \out\look of the bag should reveal the subject of the conference. How should we do that? User Mina "The subject of the conference" Problem 2000-11-09. Here we have an interesting question. The subject is, after all, computer supported collaborative learning, which combines modern techniques and educational theories. The participants are not tech freaks but researchers in the field of learning who use the new technologies. Did you know that the conference is also the first European Computer Supported Collaborative Learning conference? There have been other ones in the United States earlier. What means of expressing the nature of the conference are there in the look of the bag? Color? Logo? I have never thought about that. The bag should not be too streamlined and at least not blue, as it is in traditional engineers' style. Student Ann "Designing the bag" Starting Problem 2000-10-18 Comments and sketches of bag design phases are placed here The first sketch can be found from the thread "Possible proper ties of the bag / a sketch" Attachments: bag1.jpg Student Ann "Bag sketch "Working Theory 2000-10-18 Here is an idea about the shape of the bag. Actually we thought that the bag would be more round, it is the way things are today (modern cars etc.). Joining the handles together looks like a good idea. For sure it is something new. There should be a cushion in it [joined handles] to make carrying the bag more comfortable. Later it would be suitable for a shopping bag. There would not be a partition in the bag, but large pockets and a few smaller ones on both sides of the bag. Attachments: bagsketch.jpg Teacher "Nice shape" Comment 2000-10-18 I found the shape pretty good, but does the way it is carried give too feminine an impression? At least I think so. The large pockets and some small pockets to the both sides of the bag are a good decision. Student Ann "Commenting on the comments "Working Theory 2000-10-20. Lots of thanks for the comments! The latest sketches seemed to give you a lot of thoughts. Something worth refining, being too feminine seemed to be a problem. Cute; we wondered, before publishing the picture. Does the round shape that we eventually gave to the bag make it look too feminine? Apparently not. Well, there is again an attachment with sketch and possible patterns. If there are any men reading this please comment on the topic of the day, would a man also like to carry this one on his shoulder? In my opinion the original sketch had a touch of youth and "worth keeping" in it, if I say so myself. We thought that a good choice of colors would compensate for the feminine feel of the bag, if it is still here in the new proposal. Attachments: patterns.jpg User Lisa "Handbag or bag?" Comment 2000-10-20 Hi, Of the two sketches I liked the one on left, the other one was too handbag-like. Cheers, Lisa the user
