Program > Tutorial on Introduction to User Experience Design for Interactive TV


Previous research encompasses a vast and diverse body of work that accumulated over the past 20 years. In this tutorial, we take a critical look at the research literature and ask two simple questions: What is interactive TV research? Can it help us reinvent the practices of producing and using mass media, such as TV? For this purpose, we survey the literature and identify three metaphors that have guided interactive TV research up to this day: interactive TV as control of video content, interactive TV as content creation practice, and, finally, interactive TV as a communication genre that supports social processes. We propose this taxonomy so that designers of future interactive media applications and content can choose their path of research, with awareness of other directions that have been explored in the past.
