Abstract

This study describes the design iteration in the localization process of Nasa’s Eyes on the Earth which was aligned with co-creation. The paper provides insights from an experience report on project-based learning (PBL) conducted in the context of a collegiate course for Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). We will highlight how co-creation and collaborative work on an existing real-world project was aligned with increased levels of students’ engagement and markedly improved interaction design in prototypes. The implications of the co-creation and design shift for the education of designers and researchers in HCI will be discussed.
