Since 2003, I am a Professor for Interaction Design at the Interface Design Department of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam (FHP). Here you can find some results of my activities at the University.

Type: Research Project
Year: 2004 - now
Team: Boris Müller,
Tina Deiml-Seibt is the communication plattform of the Design Department at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam (FHP). By making information accessible and enhancing communication, Incom supports the project and teaching activities in the department. Furthermore, Incom is an open plattform. So it is an online resource for all design relevant topics.

Incom was specifically designed for the needs and requirements of a design department. The teaching and project activities in our department are all based around small teams. So it was important to develop a community model that takes this structure into account. By providing students and staff with so called »Workspaces«, Incom aims at re-creating the same conditions that exist in the real space.

Workspaces are similar to community blogs. They provide the users of the Workspace with a chronological list of postings, and uploads as well as an overview of all active members. Workspaces are usually public so they provide visitors an insight of current activities. (Here a link to a typical Workspace.)

Incom was initiated and developed by Tina Deiml-Seibt and myself. It was entirely funded by the Design Department of the FHP.
