2000 (English)In: 7th IDA Conference on Computer and Information Science, Linköping: Linköping University, Department of Computer and Information Science , 2000, 69-73 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
This paper describes the theory of quality-in-use of interactive IT-artefacts. It also argues for a multi-perspective view of use quality in the design and study of IT-artefacts in the home. The design community of IT-based consumer products will benefit from studying what users consider being important and meaningful use qualities. For higher transferability of results and theoretical value, an understanding of why users find these qua qualities to meaningful must be developed. Theory and methods from cognitive anthropology may provide a foundation for this. Finally future research questions and methods are presented.
