Integration of Multiple Media:From Isopia to You • Imagine connecting your PDA and getting a list of new readings. Imagine clicking on those you are interested in reading, then later when you are going on a trip, imagine having the system provide a set of readings as a downloaded package for you to read on the airplane.
Integration of Multiple Media:From Isopia to You • Imagine calling on your cellphone and getting "Today's Tips on New Drugs". Imagine that you can select whether to get more details or not, and later, when you check your email, there's a selection, or when you go to the website, your browser provides you with a link to a detailed paper which you can read online or download for later reading. You might also get a "Key Tips" scheduled for your PDA.
Integration of Multiple Media:From Isopia to You • The key to this is taking a spread of tools and media, then integrating the offerings on the different media so that you schedule or select materials using your PDA or cellphone, interact with colleagues via email or online browser, study or read either online or offline.
Integration of Multiple Media • Match the tasks to the media • Coordinate actions taken on any system with "state" of user work. For example, scheduling work via the PDA changes what is seen via the web browser • Don't let the user worry about which interface to use – make the system provide the user with the right formats and tasks for the interface in use.
Integration of Multiple Media: Match Task and Media E.g.: • PDA: schedules, short notes, summaries • Online Web Browser: interactive work, collaborative tools • Offline Downloaded: larger readings, simulations • Cell Phone: text-to-voice notices, selections for other media, emergency notification
