Abstract [en]

In design research different methods are used to develop a descriptive understanding of a design activity. One approach is to use video and audio recordings of complex activities such as team meetings in engineering design. Video and audio recordings provide the researcher with a permanent data corpus that can be used to understand events considered difficult to observe in real time. The video approach also has several limitations, especially when observing distributed teams. This paper describes the needs for a data collection framework of distributed meetings, and how a prototype system has been realized. It also presents a framework on how a physical environment - the design studio - can be used to further facilitate design research. The presented tool is based on a conferencing system where additional video streams from the design environment can be recorded (showing detail views of interesting areas etc.). The tool uses a layered video approach and all video streams can be recorded and replayed for analysis. The tool supports visual and textual bookmarks that can be used to find a particular event in the recorded data. The tool clearly has some advantages compared to traditional data collection methods and enables researchers to follow distributed design sessions.
