IT’S ALL ABOUT COMMUNICATION: Designing Learning Objects For An Entire University

Perry, Gabriela Trindade; Bock, Marlise Santos; Carneiro, Mára Lúcia Fernandes;


This paper is about one of the most challenging issue a team faces when designing learning objects in large scale: professor-designer communication. Despite having a technically qualified and satisfied team, proper infrastructure and experience, for us both communication and the vision professors have about interacting and using technology in classroom are bottlenecks. Several time design tasks are delayed because we do not understand each other languages - and because we (designer) and them (professors) master very different domains, sometimes we cannot help them to improve their design visions. We will frame this paper on our experience, but we believe that it can be extended to every medium/large team designing and developing several learning objects at the same time.
