Exploring Interactive Information Radiators – A Longitudinal Real-World Case Study

Florian Ott, Michael Koch
2019 Mensch & Computer  
We present a longitudinal case study of implementing inter-active information radiators in practice.  ...  The insights from the case study include the importance of including users in finding relevant information, and of presenting this information in an attractive way.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank our project partners at GTG for allowing us to follow the project and for sharing some of their experiences and insights with us during our interviews.  ...
