Abstract: IA Institute member and Indiana University Assistant Professor in Human-Computer Interaction, Davide Bolchini, has alerted us to a new, freely available and exciting design tool which his team has developed. URL - User Requirements with LEGO by Lorenzo Cantoni, Marco Faré and Elisabetta Frick University of Lugano, Switzerland. User Requirements with Lego (URL) is a methodology to elicit IA user requirements for web, communication- intensive applications. As an extension of the Lego Serious Play method, URL supports the definition of IA and content strategies in online communication, by helping in the elicitation of user requirements for web applications. In particular, URL helps in finding tacit, difficult to grasp communicative requirements that usually do not emerge with other methodologies. For this reason, URL has to be intended as an additional methodology, used besides formal and structured strategies (such as interviews, focus groups, etc.) to find and define user requirements. URL helps also in team building, enabling designers and stakeholders in few hours to share a common understanding of the online communication project. And the ongoing IA project design documentation is a physical, tangible LEGO landscape! URL has been used with companies in Europe and multiple stakeholders in large web projects.
