Interaction Plan


Passive Plan vs Active Plan

Is the information linear Are you hoping for absorption

via repetition Is your plan guided Is it freeform (In

gaming this would be called open world)


Goals dictate Plan

Your interaction goals will dictate your interaction plan

PlatForm


Begin with the End in Mind

what technology can I use to do that You are looking

for the right authoring environment.
