  • Interaction Design
  • Interaction Design• The practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems, and services• Focuses on understanding the goals and needs of users and trying to design tools for users to achieve those goals• Taking into account a users environment and technological limitations• Defining the structure and behavior of interactive systems
  • Stages of Interaction Design
  • Research Design Develop Bake Promote
  • Developing Personas
  • Personas• A description of a user archetype that can serve as a guide to the design process• Composed from a series of field activities such as interviews and observations• The descriptions are summarized in 1-2 pages
  • Use of Personas in Design• Designers use personas when it is not possible or practical to turn to users• Personas cannot substitute involving real users in the design process
  • Writing Scenarios
  • Scenarios• A narrative describing foreseeable interactions of types of users (characters) and the system• Include information about goals, expectations, motivations, actions and reactions• Attempts to reflect on or portray the way in which a system is used in the context of daily activity
  • ExampleIt’s Friday afternoon and Joe is flying to Sydney. Hedoesn’t have enough money for a taxi to the airportand he’s running late.He goes to a local ATM and identifies himself.He specifies that he wants $100 from his savingsaccount. He’d like the money in $20 notes so thathe can give the taxi driver the correct change.He doesn’t want a printed receipt, as he doesn’tbother keeping track of transactions in his account.
  • Writing User Stories
  • User Stories• Descriptions of a sequence of actions and events that lead to an outcome• Each user story is limited, and should fit on a small paper note/card to ensure that it does not grow too large• A quick way of handling customer requirements
  • Examples• "As a <role>, I want <goal/desire> so that <benefit>"• As a user, I want to search for my customers by their first and last names so that I can find customers faster.
