    Abstract

    This paper discusses the use of diaries in combination with field-testing of prototypes, as a technique for requirements gathering and for user testing. The effectiveness of this approach combined with logging, interviews and questionnaires was assessed with a case study. This case study concerned the design of an awareness system, a computer mediated communication tool that supports related people to feel in touch with loved ones. The results were encouraging, revealing strengths and weaknesses of the adapted diary method.
