Anyone have good tips for running a brainstorming session over a conference call? I'm working on a project with 1/2 the team located in another state. We're at the beginning of a project and I would like to ensure good participation and idea sharing, but not having the face to face communication seems like it could be a restraint. Setting up meeting communication guidelines would help, and sharing whiteboard photos at the end of the session could ensure ideas were captured correctly (maybe I'm answering my own question here).
I'm trying to find a better way to do usability test analysis.
My current approach is: after i finish a usability study, with 8 or 10
users, and collected my own and all observers' notes, I usually read all
notes and then immediately write down the issues I feel area appearing
more often (assuming my brain will remember issues that are repeated in
many notes more than issues than appear only once).
Now, how do YOU approach analyzing those notes? Reading and re-writing
by heart? Putting all notes on a wall and eye-balling?
