Human-centered design for Augmented Reality (AR)
Curator: Isabel Pedersen, UOIT | March 2018 and ongoing
Collection Editor: Sharon Caldwell
Collection Archivists: Jayden Cooper, Jack Narine, and Sharon Caldwell
This collection grows out of an augmented reality research collaboration between by Ann Hill Duin, Ph.D. (University of Minnesota), Dawn Armfield, Ph.D. (Minnesota State University), and Isabel Pedersen, Ph.D. (University of Ontario Institute of Technology). It will complement a panel presentation at the 2018 IEEE International Professional Communication Conference (ProComm) in Toronto, and a corresponding paper Experiencing content: Heuristics for human-centered design for augmented reality to be published in the conference proceedings.
This collection goal is to influence the future of content strategy for augmented reality environments. It is organized using an evolving metadata that informs a growing heuristic for Augmented Reality (AR) designers, usability experts, students and professional communicators. It begins with human-centricity as a design premise or a "design strategy". The collection charts new developments across corporate and academic innovations, many still in prototype, using specialized keywords and descriptions.
