Communicating User Experience: Applying Local Strategies Research to
Digital Media Design uses case studies to examine the ways in which Local
Strategies Research (LSR) can help determine user experiences with digital
media. Rather than simply trying to alter a product’s design to alleviate
the trouble caused by cultural differences across digital media, designers
can use this information to learn more about the how such trouble fits into
a larger set of expectations regarding the everyday practices of uses. By
considering the cultural norms that both inform and act out within
interaction, Milburn and the contributors provide a useful methodology that
shifts design (particularly HCI) research from a focus on emotional,
subjective user experiences to the everyday practices involved in
interacting with one another in and through digital devices and interfaces.
The chapters include various situations and contexts including those
between individuals and digital interfaces (such those installed in cars),
between dyads via mobile phones and online interfaces, and interaction
among members of groups. Communicating User Experience examines and
analyzes the way we communicate in the digital age and will be a valuable
resource for scholars of communication and new media.
