Community Response

The RISD ID community quickly adopted the board as a resource. Within two weeks 1/3rd of the slots were filled. The board's contents weren’t limited to work.  Action sports emerged as a common interest. A lot of community members hope to learn skiing, snowboarding, and rock climbing. And a handful of community members are happy to help with these activities! The board successfully built connections between teachers, first year students, and second year students.

Waning interest with time -  The amount of new entries slowed after a month. The participants that primarily added to the board after that were new to the space. For the community members frequenting the studio the board's novelty had worn off. Likely, new cohorts entering the space will pump new life into the board.
