Hi Jess, 

I agree - lets discuss the logistics of the DIA visit in Thursday's MTG at 10:00AM 

Best, Vicki

My only comment is that we'll want to give David, Jennifer, and Amy a heads-up and a bit of a sense of what we'll hope to do sooner than later. They have squirreled away those days or large chunks of those days, but if they need to secure others' time, they'll need to do that now. 

So, let's get them in the loop once y'all have some clarity.

Hi Alison (et al), 

Great chatting with you and glad to have you back! 

To clarify objectives I've laid out, this is what we want to accomplish in the next 6-days: 

1- A Backend paper-prototype for the In-museum kiosk, which focuses on the museum's staff interaction 
2- A Frontend paper-prototype for the In-Museum kiosk, which focuses on the visitor's interaction 
3- A list of walk-through questions to ask the DIA when going through each of the paper-prototypes 

I initially thought you and James would have time to do a user test but in the case that there's not a enough time, I think the paper-prototypes will suffice for now. More clarity around whether you'll walk through the mobile wireframes is up for discussion tomorrow. 

To the group: 
If anyone has any thoughts on this please feel free to comment and make suggestions. Again, this will be the bulk of our conversation at tomorrow's meeting.

I just had a chance to touch base with James about the design related 
activities that happened wrt to the DIA while I was gone. He suggested 
that we structure some meetings for Thursday & leave Friday more open. 

In terms of meetings we can have, I think our visit will give us a 
good chance solidify the direction we'll take on the micro engagement 
map project (e.g inward facing sandbox? outward facing system for 
docents & visitors? both). Another activity in this space would be 
some testing, but that depends on where our wireframes are at. 

And because of concerns about the quality of data in various DIA DBs, 
that we should plan meet with staff members who have expertise about 
the systems. Off the top of my head, Christina the registrar who works 
deeply with TMS, and Paul Noll from their IT dept, who would probably 
figure extensively in implementing Engage . 

What are your thoughts on we might accomplish with this time (obviously the 
DIA will have input & needs too... )
