Return to Designing IPL Social Interaction


Submit a paper of about 5 single-spaced pages containing your conceptual design for an extension to IPL to support social networking. Use the definition of conceptual design from Chapter 11 of the textbook. Do not provide a prototype of a physical design.

Discuss why you think this is a good conceptual design.

Take advantage of all that you have learned in the course.

Try to be creative and to really push a vision of social networking that goes beyond what is currently available. Do not simply design minor functionality that is temporarily missing from IPL, but think about how students around the world could be brought together to explore digital resources collaboratively.

You may certainly discuss your ideas with other people in the class (or elsewhere), but you must submit your own individual paper, giving credit to others where appropriate.

Place a title, your name and the date at the top of your paper. Number the pages. Save your paper with a file name of your last name and "_design" (e.g., stahl_design.doc). Submit your Word document as an attachment to an email to: Gerry.Stahl@drexel.edu.

Email your paper by midnight of the due date. Grades will be substantially reduced for late papers.

The papers

The papers were so good that I would like to post them here so you can read each other's paper:

In my paper, I used the Microsoft Surface Project as a basis for developing software. If you are interested in learning more, go to this site: http://www.microsoft.com/surface/
