personal blog week7

If you had a design challenge, would you join and participate in one of the types of online communities we’ve been researching? Why or why not?

The answer is definitely yes. To Join and participate in online communities is a good way to get inspirations when met a design challenge. Actually, I did it quite often. I will seek for help online if I get stuck in any cases, like, exhaust brainstorming new items for visualization sketching or lack of ideas for a text report.

The tools I used to tackle the obstacles in designing are Facebook, some specific online forumsand something like Yahoo Answers. Those are all really useful for me. During the process, I can always get benefits. Even though, sometimes you don’ t get stuck, just share the good ideas you have with other people, then you can also get improvements from others’ feedbacks.

In addition, after you got a good idea, there are still some challenges, like how to make it happen? How to let people aware of it? I think one of the best solutions is that utilizing those online fundraising websites which we researched a lot during past 7 weeks.

Overall, I think participate in online communities is helpful for me to tackle design challenges.

    It is really interesting to see how you might use these tools. You have a very individual perspective, and your answer made me realize that I was making a lot of “group” assumptions. That groups would want to find ways to work together, versus individuals finding help at the moments they needed it. Thank you for opening my eyes!
