many members of this community assisted me by filling out a web survey
aimed at collecting requirements for a low fi prototyping tool. We
(Frank Maurer and myself) have created a tool called ActiveStory which
allows designers to create low fi wireframe prototypes via a tablet
and deploy them to the internet. Usability test participants can then
use the prototype and the system automatically collects data such as:
the time spent on a page, the mouse trail of each user, and allows
users to post comments on any page in the design. If anyone is
interested in evaluating the tool I would greatly appreciate it.
ActiveStory can be downloaded from
