Session: Introducing Pachyderm

This paper describes a process for gathering user requirements used in the development of Pachyderm 2.0, an easy-to-use multimedia authoring tool with asset management capabilities. Examples of source documents, descriptions of procedures used, and specific results of user tests are included to illustrate the flow of the requirements-gathering and testing activities. The process can be easily adapted to projects of varying scope and budgets.
