  • Roots go back to a classic game known as “Telephone”

  • First person starts off with a phrase, next draws a picture of it, next writes a descriptive phrase of the drawing, and so on.

  • As game continues, pictures and phrases comically morph

  • Game with no real goal except to have fun and be creative


  • Available online at as well as on iOS devices

  • Users can rate other’s descriptions and drawings, as well as view others’ threads

  • Powerful drawing interface allows very expressive and detailed illustrations


Interaction Mapping

Personas and Scenarios

  • 5 interviews

  • 3 personas

  • 3 scenarios

    Comparative Evaluation

  • 3 direct competitors

  • 2 partial competitors

  • 1 analogous competitor

  • 7 findings


Heuristic Analysis

  • JakobNielsen's 10 Usability Heuristics

  • 17 findings


  • Link put up on website

  • 18 questions

  • 36 responses

    Usability Testing

  • 5 users

  • 5 tasks

  • 8 findings


  • The Drawing Interface:Teledraw's drawing interface is well-liked and packed with many features, but could still be improved with new functionality.

  • Evidence: Interviews, Comparative Evaluation, Heuristic Evaluation, Survey, Usability Testing


  • Improve functionality of hot-keys and guarantee browser compatibility

  • Fine-tune default tool specs and the preview window for better usability

  • Explore additional drawing tools such as Layers, Zoom, Clear Canvas and Image Export


  • Help & Instructions: Teledraw's current help and instructions do not fully explain its core gameplay and robust set of drawing tools.

  • Evidence: Comparative Evaluation, Heuristic Evaluation, Usability Testing


  • Improve gameplay instructions to better convey Teledraw's concept and gameplay

  • Increase the quantity/visibility of labels and tool-tips in the drawing interface

  • Develop a collection of tutorials and instructional videos to help users develop their Teledraw skills


  • Channels & Group Play: Users are interested in more options for playing Teledraw socially or in groups with friends.

  • Evidence: Interviews, Comparative Evaluation, Survey, Usability Testing


  • Fully develop the existing 'Channels' functionality to support group play

  • Consider expanding Teledraw's gameplay offerings to include Team Drawing, Private Threads and richer commenting/chat features within the application


  • Homepage vs. Profile Page: It is difficult to distinguish between Teledraw’s logged-in homepage and the user profile page. Users also had difficulty locating their recent submissions on Teledraw.

  • Evidence: Heuristic Evaluation, Usability Testing


  • Show channels, user stats, awards, and social media links on same profile page.

  • Allow user to view own submissions as well as others' submissions on same page

  • Keep homepage same for logged-in and logged-out users.


  • Thread Viewer: The Thread Viewer’s purpose and functionality was a source of confusion for all usability testers, prompting descriptions such as “confusing” and “unclear”.

  • Evidence: Usability Testing


  • After submitting a drawing or description, Thread Viewer should display user's submission instead of start of thread

  • Rename Thread Viewer to something more understandable

  • Number submissions so user knows what portion of a thread they are viewing


  • Marketing and Social Media: Teledraw may benefit from increased social media presence. The greatest proportion of survey respondents found out about Teledraw by word of mouth.

  • Evidence: Comparative Evaluation, Survey


  • Flesh out information about Teledraw and encourage reviews on gaming sites

  • Create a forum or "subreddit" for users

  • Place social media links on Teledraw in more obvious locations


  • Evaluating Teledraw through 6 methodological lenses allowed us to approach the application from all angles

  • Continuity of findings across different methods speaks to the salience of our research data

  • Teledraw’s strong gameplay and loyal users reflect an application poised to further establish itself in a competitive marketplace
