"Narrowcast yourself": designing for community storytelling in a rural Indian context
The StoryBank project is examining technologies and practices to allow digitally impoverished communities to take part in the user-generated content revolution. The approach involves combining mobile phones to create audio-visual stories and a touch screen display situated in a community meeting place. This paper discusses the design, evaluation and refinement of the situated display. We consider how our experiences of working with a rural Indian village community influenced design processes, principles and prototypes. The work highlights the value of community-centred design practices and prototypes in such developing-world contexts. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.5.2. [User Interfaces]: evaluation/methodology; input devices and strategies; interaction styles; prototyping; user-centred design. General Terms Design, Experimentation, Human Factors. Keywords User-generated content, digital-divide, design and evaluation.
