Human recommending and badges in my HCI course
Someone recommends something to someone else
So, they will design, build and evaluate an application that enables one person to suggest a book, a movie, a course, etc. to another person. Incidentally, it would be interesting to hear about your experiences: how do you typically give or receive recommendations?
(No, we’re not considering software generated recommendations – this is about one person making a recommendation for another person.)
We’ve also started to experiment with badges - as another student tweeted:
Being 'rewarded' with badges is really motivating and on the other hand just fun! #chikul13—

This is still a bit in the early stages, but we’re quite excited to experiment with the mozilla open badge system…
So far, students have done brainstorming sessions and developed storyboards. Next Tuesday, we will evaluate paper prototypes in think-aloud tests. You’re very welcome to leave comments on their blogs (or here) if you want to influence their work!
