Abstract

Increasing researches support the importance of physical activity in maintaining health and preventing from diseases. Nowadays, researchers from different disciplines and health organizations are putting a lot of effort on interventions and strategies to increase the motivation of people in being more physically active. Following the same incentive, we introduce a novel system “ICT-based Community Coaching‿ as a strategy to motivate people to be physically active. It is a strategy based on human-to-human feedback where we transform the physical activity into a social activity. As the system is a new approach we focused on the elicitation of the requirements. In order to elicit the requirements of this system, we elaborated a scenario in order to make explicit the ideas of the Community Coaching system. Then we elaborated a questionnaire to be able to define important functionalities that can be useful for potential users.
