Collaborative Process: The Making of Griffith in Context

The interface designs and functionality for all modules of Griffith in Context have been created through an iterative and collaborative process involving a three to five person design group led by Ellen Strain and Gregory VanHoosier-Carey with major contributions by Patrick Ledwell.

Currently Patrick Quattlebaum is contributing to the final phases of design and production as Strain and VanHoosier-Carey prepare for fall classroom testing of the CD-ROM.

An early prototype was constructed in 1998 with design group members, Doug Smith, Jennifer Smith, Robin Kravets. Other past contributors to the project also include Jason Brotherton (feasibility of editing exercise) and Abla Hamilton (publicity coordinator).
