The results of the project with LifeLike Interaction have been published

In the context of the collaboration with Lifelike Interaction (go to the¬†project page for more info), the White Paper “Un simulatore per allenare l‚Äôabilit√† di elicitazione dei requisiti utente nella progettazione di applicazioni multimediali”¬†has been published (in Italian).

The publication presents the results of the experiment that eLab conducted in collaboration with LifeLike, whose goal was to to test the effectiveness of a simulator specifically developed to train the User Requirements Elicitation (URE) skills, i.e. the ability to identify the requirements a website needs to have to satisfy the possible requests of its users.

The results show that the group that was systematically trained with the simulator improved both its performances with the simulator and its URE skills.

The White Paper can be downloaded from here.
