On his way out of the dorm, Mike sees the Sunscreen Challenge kiosk and remembers that he should put on sunscreen. He stops for a moment to apply some to his face and neck. Mike enjoys himself walking around campus in the pleasant sunshine. Mike remembers a girl he met in class and decides to invite her to join the Sunscreen Challenge.

  7. 7. Theoretical Justifications <ul><ul><li>Freely provided sunscreen increases the ability of more students to use it </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Visible sunscreen stands placed at the exits of the dorm provide a good trigger for using sunscreen </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Becoming a fan of the Facebook page alerts friends through the news feed, promoting an increase in awareness of the Sunscreen Challenge and sunscreen use </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  8. 8. Plan for User Testing <ul><ul><li>Start with one floor of West Lag, setting up a kiosk by the exit with sunscreen and information about the Sunscreen Challenge </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Recruit 5 people to track closely for sunscreen use, and have them become fans of the Facebook page </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Invite the rest of the floor to use sunscreen as desired, and tell them about the Facebook page </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Track how frequently the 5 participants use sunscreen, and if other people on the floor are using it </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  9. 9. Shortcomings of Design <ul><ul><li>If people are late, they may not stop to use sunscreen on the way out the door </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>People may leave the dorm at different times each day; this inconsistency may reduce habit formation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>People may not notice the sunscreen kiosks, especially over time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sunscreen must by purchased and stocked by the dorm or university </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There is a risk of sunscreen theft </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A Facebook page is not as viral as an application </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>People may not have time or motivation to log their sunscreen use </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>People may not want to receive weekly reminders / updates </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  10. 10. Expansion - What else is possible? <ul><ul><li>Other form factors or ID possibilities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Complement Facebook page with a Facebook application that would track users’ sunscreen use and display rankings of the most frequent users </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other features and interactions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide different types of sunscreen – spray on, etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Expand to all dorms, other university buildings, other universities </li></ul></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
