Abstract

Social media tools provide new possibilities to involve end users as codesigners through the whole innovation process. Owela (Open Web Lab) is an online community that supports participatory design within users, designers and developers. Currently Owela serves as a platform that collects user feedback, experiences and ideas from different physical and online sources. In this paper we present the Owela co-design model and tools for different phases of the innovation process. The co-design process consists of open innovation space and scheduled projects for product and service development. We present a case example of the use of the Owela process in a design process of the social bookmarking service called Tilkut. We conclude that online tools can make the codesign easier and cheaper to apply in everyday work. However, the traditional tools and methods can not be directly applied on the web, but the whole design process should be reconsidered in aim to work well online. A combination of online and offline tools is needed for effective co-design.
