  • P: "Does it guide me? Or do I guide it?"
  • Started by going to exhibitions
  • P: "What exhibition am I in? ... Must be 'Simply Montreal'"
  • Wiki MarkupP: "I had to scroll back all the way up to the top when I was at the bottom of the page---not nice." \ [a persistent, always-on-top bar would help with some of this\]
  • Viewing the default full catalogue. M: "Why did you choose this?". P: "Because it was on the screen; would guess that it's asking me what I'd like to see" (reasoned that because it was there, that's what he was supposed to do and see)
  • On full catalogue: P: "Lots of options here"
  • P: "Doesn't guide you in a linear way"
  • P: "Takes a bit of time to load up"unmigrated-wiki-markup
  • P: "Shows me the picture \ [of an artifact\] but not where in the exhibit it is"
  • P: "Would be easier if there was a map of the exhibit floor and tell me where I can find this item"
  • Standing in front of case with winter clothing, going to full catalogue to try and find objects
  • P: "Looking visually for it."unmigrated-wiki-markup
  • P: "Are all these items \ [physical space\] in the database? Are they grouped by case?"
  • Sees groups of artifacts on device, but not sure where they are in the space
  • P: "Clearly not a linear exhibit, very open-ended exhibit"
  • P: "Would be easier if I could tap on a map where I am, and it would bring up the case that I'm looking at"
  • Sees section headings/titles in catalogue
  • P: "Not sure where in the exhibit where it gives me that title; don't see areas with that title"
  • P: "Don't seem to be able to search for artifact on the mobile guide"
  • Would like to be able to type in a keyword/title like "Stove" and get the object; and if able to find that, would think to be able to find objects nearby it
  • P sees physical object, but can't find it on the default full catalogue view (doing a visual scan); not sure if all the objects in the exhibit are in the guide
  • Notices "view all" option
  • P: "Kind of small---would be better if it were bigger and more noticeable"
  • P: "For those who aren't used to these sorts of devices, it'd be good if there'd be a tutorial on how to use it beforehand... handbook, or demo on device"
  • P: "Would be nice to type in a word and see if you can get more information" (search ability)
  • Looking at a print in the space, looked for it on the device through the catalogue view using view all, and successfully found it. M: "How did you find that?" - P: "Print looked like it was in a sports-themed case, so I scanned the section headings and I tapped on 'view all' of a sporty-like name"
  • P: "To get back to the previous screen, need to scroll all the way back up; would be nice if there were buttons on the bottom too"

  • M highlighted the object code labels and object code entry option on the device
  • P used object code to access an artifact, but made a typo on the second digit; entered an invalid code, but recovered from it quickly (no difficulty)
  • Wiki MarkupOn asking how to refer back to an object for the future, P responded by using "add a note" under an artifact \ [note vs. comments could have caused misunderstanding here\]
  • On the comment/note entry screen:
  • P: "Doesn't say how to enter a note" (no keyboard popped up)
  • On trying to submit, tapped: RET, then DONE, then SUBMIT
  • M: "What do you think comment does?" — P: "Leaves a note to self, or for subsequent visitors. Are comments permanent? ... It's probably for subsequent visitors"
  • M: "What do you think 'Collect' does?" — P: "Don't know." (tapped 'Collect', tapped 'Go to My Collection') P: "Looks like you can assemble and send email of it to yourself or others."
  • P watching an artifact video; finding the volume is low; P put the device to ear to try and hear better, but then back in front of self to view the video
  • P: "No way to turn off the video mid way?"
  • While watching the video, P looks mostly at the video, but sometimes at the actual physical object too
  • Looks like P wanted to tap the screen a few times during the video, but restrained self for some reason (not sure what it would do, didn't want to 'break' it?)
  • After sending My Collection to self: P: "It's apparently sent to my email?" (no submit feedback)
