Mockups Walk-through & Discussion

Link to Mockups: https://files.inclusivedesign.ca/s/kNygGET3epobFku

  • Reminders and touchnotes - when does it make sense to have a reminder and when doesn’t it?

  • Consider touchnote “states” such as “Sleep” vs. “Tired” / “Well-rested”

    • Here “Sleep” is a prompt for more info, while “Tired” and “Well-rested” can be stand-alone touch notes

  • How would notification pop up?

    • Reminder is a way to somehow get something at the top level of your device

    • You may only be able to just open the app from the reminder

    • Notification API for Firefox - all browsers have a notification feature - any site can ask to use it - common with social media sites - you have to have the site open

    • Draft Push API from W3C, where messages can be sent even when the webapp is not active. (FF has an experimental implemention, as does Chrome, Browser compatibility statement on MDN site).

  • Journal can take user to storytelling tool (or a version of it) - this tool will allow multi-modal entry

  • Keep GPII preferences separate from the journal - allow rating/commenting about preferences

  • How do you find correlations between data points?

    • Allow the learner to play around and make their own conclusions from their data

    • Also allow auto-correlations/statistical output

    • Timeline - be able to grab hold of the x-coordinate (time) for any given data set and drag it

    • Give the learner more control - consider relationships between data that may not be immediate, or may be time-delayed

  • Can you add additional text notes to a touch note?

    • I.e. can you go back and add notes/comments to a previous touchnote data point?

    • Maybe we can do this by allowing annotation in the data

    • Other ways to do this?

  • Think about naming the touchnote something like “Quicknote” so that it’s function is more distinct from Textnotes

  • Will this be a desktop app or a mobile app or?

    • Don’t we want both?

    • Would likely start with a responsive web implementation

  • Data sets - do we want to keep them at this level, or do we want to bring them up to highest level in order to provide quicker access?

    • Possibility of having a query module where we group them all

  • What about non-linear data?

    • How do we deal with different ways of presenting the data?

    • How can we provide, say, an automatic analysis with a bunch of pie charts?

  • What does saving an analysis do?

    • It is saving a grouping that you can come back to later

    • Is it a snapshot image

    • Data exporting would be a great feature

  • Instead of or in addition to having the queries at the top level, could we somehow plot the correlations? I.e. where correlations are identified, this could become a point on the plot

    • Give learner a way to record single-point relationships

    • How to manually capture

    • Capture negative correlations as well (when I DON’T have a coffee I get a headache)

  • Where we can provide computer-assisted pattern-matching, we should offer it, but learner shouldn’t need to rely on this - give them as much flexibility as possible

  • An escape mechanism - if we can’t process the data in a certain way, allow user to look at it manually

  • Annotating touchnote data - would it be feasible to make touchnotes and textnotes the same thing?

    • Allow enough flexibility to act like either?

    • Allow notes to have different personalities - “text” makes you think of only one thing

  • The digital preferences seems a little out of place - it’s an external source - would be part of My Data?

    • External data - things like weather

    • My Data includes anything to do with me, whether it’s auto-collected (like Fitbit) or manual (like Touchnotes)

  • Real data is messy and hard to make sense of

    • Could be interesting if we as a group tracked some data for a month - and then tried to make our own correlations, challenges in making sense of it etc

    • We could share our data or not, or maybe just the challenges

  • “Reporter” app ($5.50) - allows you to collect data throughout the day and then look at a summary each day including graphs, notes etc

  • https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/reporter-app/id...

  • here's an interesting looking app for android https://exist.io/

    • subscription based

  • https://exist.io/privacy/

    • their correlation feature is interesting indeed

    • I like how they summarize the quantity of data they have, as well as their confidence level

    • they also have an API http://developer.exist.io/

    • it is: web, android, and ios

  • MYL3 may be useful for parents/guardians of children who require IEPs (individual educatin plan) in public school. Right now tracking behaviour is anectodtal from teachers and parents with no real connection to environment contributors.

    • Multiple users

    • Sharing option

  • No labels
