Identifying users

Identifying Users

  • Who do you want to visit your page and why?

  • Other students at TAMU and other universities – to motivate them to participate in community-oriented activities

  • Students in high school – to convince them to come to TAMU

  • Younger students – to provide them with information for science/design activities

  • The public at large – to communicate about the community-oriented projects

Use cases

Use Cases

  • Discuss scenarios of use – when someone comes across your web site, what do they do?

  • Motivating activity or application

    • Discuss what is rewarding about your own experience with project and at TAMU

  • Providing data for learning activities

    • Provide examples of how the contents can be used in classes

  • Communicating about projects

    • Describe what you have learned or found interesting, provide examples of alternate designs and the choices made, photos, etc.

Designing content and navigation

Designing Content and Navigation

  • Web site navigation is crucial when one web site has multiple communities or goals

  • Content Issues

    • Differing levels of prior knowledge

    • Differing reading levels

  • Navigational choices

    • Navigation by content

    • Navigation by community



Design methods

Design Methods

  • Traditional waterfall model

    • Requirements -> design -> build -> deliver

  • Iterative design

    • design –> evaluate -> design -> evaluate …

  • Design rationale

    • Forces recording (development) of reasons for design

  • Participatory design

    • Includes stakeholders in design team

Evaluation for this class

Evaluation for this class

  • Usability vs. usefulness

  • Discuss pros and cons of design within project group

  • Show it to friends and get their feedback

    • Ask them what is wrong, what might be better, and what they would want to see

  • Have a short questionnaire or semi-structured interview

  • Trade feedback effort with other project groups

Evaluation in other contexts

Evaluation in Other Contexts

  • Heuristic evaluation with experts

  • Laboratory studies

    • Efficiency (time to task completion, tasks per hour)

    • Accuracy (error rate, wrong turns)

    • Satisfaction (user perception)

  • Observations in practice

  • Log data from interactions
