English abstract:
In this paper we present the analysis of the three years iterative design process of the research project kommTUi. In kommTUi, the goal was to design and develop an accessible communication system with tangible user interface to support digital inclusion of elderly people. We propose our qualitative approach for user involvement and identify the atmosphere as key factor for successful research outcome when working with older adults. Therefore, we introduce a graphical analysis tool for comparing the conducted workshops by means of different trigger elements like tangible input, location, participants and communication.
