The Iterative Design of a Virtual Design Studio
Blevis, Eli; Lim, Youn-kyung; Stolterman, Erik; Makice, Kevin
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v52 n1 p74-83 Jan 2008
In this article, the authors explain how they implemented Design eXchange as a shared collaborative online and physical space for design for their students. Their notion for Design eXchange favors a complex mix of key elements namely: (1) a virtual online studio; (2) a forum for review of all things related to design, especially design with the materials of technology; (3) individual, group, class, program, and public spaces supported by a logic of permissions for access and sharing, and (4) a vision for supporting design knowledge, credentials, community, and guild. This article describes the progression of form for the Design eXchange, as well as the projects that preceded and inspired it. For the past two years, the authors have been using wiki technology to accomplish this. (Contains 10 figures.)
