Creating Creativity for Everyone: User Interfaces for Supporting Innovation
MetadataShow full item record
A challenge for human-computer interaction researchers and user interface designers is to construct information technologies that support creativity.This ambitious goal can be attained by building on an adequate understand-ing of creative processes. This paper offers the four-phase genex frame-work for generating excellence: - Collect: learn from previous works stored in digital libraries- Relate: consult with peers and mentors at early, middle and late stages- Create: explore, compose, and evaluate possible solutions - Donate: disseminate the results and contribute to the digital libraries Within this integrated framework, this paper proposes eight activities that require human-computer interaction research and advanced user inter-face design. A scenario about an architect illustrates the process of creative work within a genex environment.
