'stimulated recall' method can be used in relation to videotaped observations for investigating student groups using e.g., SSpA
. The procedure starts by observing a group in an authentic task setting and videotaping the activity. You do not need to plan in advance where to focus your observation if you capture the core activity in video; therefore the method suits well for explorative usability analysis where you are not sure what emerges from the usage of the tool. Afterwards the video is watched together with the user group in a researcher-led discussion about the process and experiences; various issues can be discussed based on what comes out of watching the video. Also that discussion is video- or audio taped and can be used as data for analysis and source for further design decisions.
