Phase 3 powerpoint- Final Presentation

  1. 1. User Centred Design Project Phase 3: Design Process and Interactive Prototype By: Laura and Roxy
  2. 2. What we will cover: •Problem definition and the aims and goals of our project •Design process •User research findings (Our users wanted… •Users and persona integration •Design concept •Original design vs final design •Benefits to users
  3. 3. Problem Definition Facebook is the devil! “ I keep on getting distracted when I’m on the internet” I can never get any work done with everyone chatting to me over msn… Why does it always feel like a chore to add to my blog I have so many tabs open with all my social networking sites that my browser keeps crashing. I have no self control… I need to look at trashy photos of my friends mid essay…
  4. 4. Problem Definition • These cries are the problems we wanted to answer. • We wanted to revolutionise the way students work, study and play on the internet. • We wanted to make it quick, simple and easy for users to perform simple every day tasks from the browser supporting both work and social tasks separately- allowing for more quality time for other web activities. • Overall our aim for this project is to increase efficiency through the organisation of web functions activities that support student online and offline activities.
  5. 5. • A browser of the students • For the students • By the students
  6. 6. Design Process brainstorming sketching wire framing prototyping
  7. 7. • Everyone in this room • all students (high school to tertiary) • May be utilised to a broader market including staff and teachers. User Personas Our Users The user persona that we chose to base our project on was seventeen year old Amie Pond. As a basis of most of preliminary research, she best suited the target audience that could most benefit from our project, due to their high study and social demands.
  8. 8. So what do your feel doing today? In our project users have the choice to choose from two ‘modes’: study and social mode. Our concept: The ‘mode’ factor Study Social
  9. 9. Study mode is activated when users wish to focus on work related tasks, and focus web activities around the task to be completed. Such activities include: - Researching online catalogues and websites, - Visiting core websites for task related information (e.g. university site) - General Information searches, - Use of Online Collaboration tools - Open Office sites. In study mode, users are greeted with a side menu bar that contains current browser functions plus specialised functions that assist the users work related tasks. Our Concept: Study mode Study

  11. 11. Our Concept: Social mode SocialSocial mode is activated when users wish to focus on leisure activities rather than study/work related tasks, and focus web activities around social and personal interests. In social mode, users are greeted with a side menu bar similar to study mode, but contains integrated social networking functions, e.g. photo sharing, to allow users to keep track of all their user profiles from the browser. Social mode enables users to manage their online social profiles as well as organise their offline social events- with the browser created to become the users own “personal organiser” with a event function integrating calendar features with online social networking events.

  13. 13. The benefits: Different modes provide a different environment to work or play in, allowing the user to have control in which activities they want to focus on, without the temptation of the other. Ability to have different function/sites nearby to suit different activities. E.g. able to have activity specific bookmarked icons in study mode and social mode that are not needed in the other- e.g. have world of war craft in social mode but it the icon is a hindrance for study activities, so is replaced by the uni website in study mode. Different mode= different frame of mind User becomes more focused on the task ahead. Clean, simple and easy to use- very straight forward. Does not incorporate tabs, all functions can be used on any page the user is on. Provides easy links the networks you like most, in relation to the function you want to perform. E.g. album button will link to the album on the social site.
