User Stories Collection
During breakout discussions to set direction for the Project Bamboo Work Groups participants were asked to identify initial tasks to be completed during the gap between W2 and W3. Several teams identified the collection of User Stories or Use Cases as an important first step. Those teams were Standards, Tools and Repositories, Institutional Support and Service Framework. After hearing the descriptions of the other groups, the Scholarly-Social Networking group found that some of their requests could be folded into the category of user stories as well.
This page is intended to focus the collection of User Stories by those five groups and ultimately to shape a space and a process for maintaining their documentation and linkage to Bamboo work.
- Each group should aim to create a collection of user stories by 11/21 (the last Friday before Thanksgiving).
- A space or tool should be developed for maintaining user stories and their linkage to Bamboo work as the project moves forward.
Specific Needs Per Group
The following pages include details about the specific elements needed by each work group.
User Stories - Standards
User Stories - Tools and Repositories
User Stories - Institutional Partnerships and Support
User Stories - Service Framework
User Stories - Scholarly-Social Networking
- These tasks and the analysis of the linkages between the stories and the derived artifacts (eg. Standards, Tools, Activities) is going to be a complex and necessary task. It would be good to get someone with some Information Architecture background to look for a tool, process or space design that can be used to keep this information and process organized.
- The planning committee should coordinate the call for user stories coming from the various groups to reduce confusion and overburdening faculty with numerous requests if at all possible.
