Interactive Environments: Group Communication


As we have an organised list of assets, telling each member of the group what needs to be built and what has been built and who by. As it is a group project, we needed to have good communication throughout the length of the project, to make sure we all worked together in building the assets. Firstly to keep on top of research, to show who had researched certain areas so other members wouldn’t waste time researching the same thing. To do this, we created a wiki to place all our research information into it, but because it’s a wiki, anyone can put information into it. To keep on top of this, each member of the group created their own wiki account, so when they posted or added information to the Paragon Station wiki, it would show up with their name when they added something. On the wiki, it shows research of paragon station itself, the clothing style of different types of community and asset lists and images. Although it was only a small amount of research added, I feel that it wasn’t as successful as first thought. Most research found by members of the group was either placed within the room or kept to themselves, when it could of been helpful to be added to the wiki.

Steam Group

To attempt to keep on top of what everyone was doing and to see where they are up to with their work, a few people in the group decided to create a group on Steam as we all have steam accounts. This way we could see who was online at the time and contact them if you needed any help or information. As a group hub it didn’t work well as some people never went on steam, a thing it was good for was sending personal messages to various members of the group, as it was the only way you could get a hold of some of the members.

Group Meetings

Probably the most efficient and best way to communicate with the group was the meetings we held in the lesson. Where we gathered everyone around the tables and asked where they are up to, what they have got done and what they plan to do next. This allowed us to see and make sure no one else creates or researches parts that have already been made, although short in length, the group meetings helped us find out various information. As well as this, some members of the group were working on the same part of the station, for example I was working on the platforms, adam was working on the train, scott was working on the tracks and mark was working on the buffers. When we noticed this, we decided to work together in a small group so would could help and pass information to each other, like sizes of certain areas, texture colours and images.
