Managing Requirements for Mobile Learning

Haley, Debra T.; Nuseibeh, Bashar; Sharp, Helen C. and Taylor, Josie T. (2004). Managing Requirements for Mobile Learning. Technical Report 2004/18; Department of Computing, The Open University.



This paper reports on the experience of eliciting and managing requirements on a large European-based multinational project, whose purpose is to create a system to support learning using mobile technology. The project used the socio-cognitive engineering methodology for human-centered design [1] and the Volere shell and template [2] to document requirements. We provide details about the project below, describe the Volere tools, and explain how and why we used a flexible categorization scheme to manage the requirements. Finally, we discuss three lessons learned: (1) provide a flexible mechanism for organizing requirements, (2) plan ahead for the RE process, and (3) do not forget the waiting room.
