One of the central goals of the KP-Lab project is to co-design pedagogical methods and technologies for knowledge creation and practice transformation in an integrative and reciprocal manner. In order to facilitate this process user tasks, driving objectives and high-level requirements have been introduced as conceptual tools to mediate between technological design empirical research as well as theory development. The user tasks describe the generic activities users should be able to perform interactively with KP-Lab technology, based on the perspective of trialogical learning. The driving objectives are derived from the KP-Lab design principles of trialogical learning, the results obtained from empirical investigations that were performed in the pedagogical work packages as well as the reviews and analyses of available technologies and their potentials carried out by technical partners. In short, the driving objectives provide overall scope and direction for the technology development based on KP-Lab theory and practice. They encapsulate the high-level requirements which provide more detailed descriptions of technology support for supporting knowledge creation and practice transformation. This deliverable provides an updated overview of driving objectives and high-level requirements for guiding the technological design and implementation of the KP-Lab system. The document highlights also particularly the added value of semantic services from a user's point of view as well as the use of respective applications in different research cases. This document supersedes the current list of driving objectives and high-level requirements as documented in DoW3.1 (KP-Lab, 2008b). The document is focused on the description of user tasks, driving objectives and high-level requirements. An in depth discussion of the objectives and requirements from a theoretical, pedagogical and technological perspective is beyond the scope of this document. For respective accounts the reader is referred to D3.3 (KP-lab, 2008c), the reports on empirical studies carried out by WP8-10 as well as the technical specifications provided by WP4-6. (Contains 24 tables, 2 figures, and 3 footnotes.
