Lilypad project featured in Drexel Quarterly

The Lilypad project was featured in this article in Drexel Quarterly:

“Our main goal in making Lilypad is to help these professionals who are in an unpredictable environment and, in addition to their work with students, they are asked to record very specific information in a very accurate way,” Marcu said. “It would be like asking a surgeon to take minute-by-minute notes on how a procedure is going, and those notes will become the legal health record.”

Marcu interviewed and observed behavioral intervention specialists over the course of several years to gain an intimate understanding of the challenges they’re facing in the work environment. This understanding is the backbone of Lilypad’s design. As a result, its many functions are distilled into just a few elements that require user interaction.
