Designers and industry both agree that new uses of media and cloud computing technologies have had a major impact on the way designers receive and share information and knowledge.
Our research team was interested in examining whether these technologies also directly affect the social dynamics in co-design meetings. In this paper, we describe the dynamics observed during an annual international competition, 24 Hours of Innovation , and at two co-design sessions held at the École de technologie supérieure s INGO Innovation Center in Montreal. Our aim was to develop a Knowledge Management System that supports the co-design experiences present in an open collaborative innovation process. We analyzed the use of media by participants during four periods of the event: announcement, information, contributions, and polling of projects. We followed 135 teams from more than 20 universities, from 5 continents, which participated in the 5th edition of 24 hours of Innovation in Montreal. This competition also included 14 remote teams that participated in the 6th edition at ESTIA France.
