Coherence, engagement, and usefulness as sensemaking criteria in participatory media practice

By Albert M. Selvin and Simon Buckingham Shum


When skilled practitioners create media artifacts such as web pages, newspaper articles, videos, or business presentations, they are engaging in a pursuit which has consequences for the people who will interact with those artifacts.

In this paper we report on initial progress to develop a method for assessing these criteria in a particular form of skilled real-time media practice
