Our Studio 2 course consists of one group project over the entire semester. We are collaborating with Motorola on a project called Mobile Media Life, in which we’ll explore imaging, communicating, visualizing, and viewing media in everyday life. The goal that has been stressed to us is determining how we can help people become skilled at enjoying, producing, and interacting with rich media at work, school, or play through new interfaces and services on mobile devices.
Today a representative from Motorola talked to us about the project and provided us with some background. We also were put into five groups of five. My team has two interaction designers, a communication planning and information designer, a guy from HCI, and a girl from the Tepper School of Business.
We’re just starting out, so there’s not much to say at this point. But it should prove to be an enriching experience.
