Mags and Marie met with Liam today to go over the prototype of the two posters. Liam was really happy with the engagement which the quotes received. Unfortunately, because someone rubbed off the "un" from "unmotivated" and "uninspired" the results weren't trustworthy.
However, we do know from the trial that the quotes were received with mixed emotions, some disliked in and were angered by it, some responded positively to both. It did seem that the Massey community liked the plain, minimal design more than the other one.
Next steps for Liam is to go back to his project team, talk about how the prototype went and then think What next?
Met with Liam last week on Friday to get a list of what he needed for a first prototype. At the moment he is acting a liaison between the project group and us. The meeting put details in plan for the first prototype:
On the travelling board put up the same quote each side. One is designed with an inspirational theme and the other is just black text on white. Underneath people are to record how the quote makes them feel:
Stressed – calm
Happy – sad
Inspired – uninspired
Marie designed the two quotes up for Liam to approve so they could get them printed and put up on the boards in the second half of Week 11. The posters are being printed at Massey's Printers in Palmy.
Liam met with Marie and Mags today to give an update on the project. He is rearing to go to trial the idea and get some prototypes out next week.
It sounds like he is having trouble getting the scholarship team together to make things happen.
Liam was offered the $150 to tap into to use for the first prototype and he just needs to decide what he needs, finalise the details of what the team should do, how they will measure success and let the staff know.
It sounds like for the prototype they want to get large post it notes to put up an inspirational quote and test how students feel about the quote. Another test could as be enticing students to draw on a board.
As part of a Business School Scholarship the students need to come up with a project. Liam approached Campus Co-Lab with the aspiration that we could help make the project his team is working on actually happen. Today we took him and his other team mate Phoebe through the process and Project Outline sheet talking through the idea and discussing where to go from here.
Liam and Phoebe indicated they were keen to make it happen, but would like to start in Week 7. Homework from set from this initial meeting:
First thoughts about this project is that it has a clear outcome or product idea, so from here it is just negotiating with the uni where the boards can go and validating with students if they want this and will use it.
