    1. 1. Longitude Usability Study Initial Presentation   Sabel Braganza Fiel Guhit Amir Malik Viet Pham
    2. 2. Domain <ul><ul><li>Longitude is a location sharing application for Android. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We will be interviewing two groups of users: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Latitude Group: Users familiar with Google Latitude </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Control Group: Control users who have never used Latitude </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The users will be graduate students and above, since usage habits of these types of applications are different for the younger ages. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We will be interviewing a total of 15 users. </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. Usability Problems <ul><ul><li>For Google Latitude users, comparison to longitude could create a bias. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unfamiliarity with Android platform, smart phone devices, or Google maps. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;One click path&quot; during testing a potential problem, very little room for error during the usability sessions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intuitive guidance through the Google Maps UI. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Zooming in and out must be manually pressed on the buttons on screen. </li></ul></ul>
    4. 4. Method: Usability Testing/Training <ul><ul><li>Social implications of Longitude and capturing participants emotions and reactions to features. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Teaching participants how to use the location-sharing application.   </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Participants will express their opinions about Longitude's features. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation of the performance of tasks given to users. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluating the user's understanding of Longitude's features. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Highlighting the differences between Longitude and Google Latitude.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Testing whether Longitude reduces the social anxieties of participants  </li></ul></ul>
    5. 5. Method: Usability Testing <ul><li>User Tasks: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Task Set 1:  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a) Ask participant to accept a friend request to connect with a friend on Longitude and give friend's location.  </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>b) Call friend from Longitude interface. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>c) Hang up on friend and give friend's new location. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Questions: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Why is the friend's icon faded?  </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If you click on a friend's icon 10 times a day over the next few days, how do you think your friend might react? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
    6. 6. Method: Usability Testing cont. <ul><ul><li>Task Set 2: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a) List how many people on friend list are in Irvine. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>b) Ask participant the total number of friends in CA or NV. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>c) Ask the participant if mother-in-law is in the CA-NV area. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>d) Ask the participant his/her mother-in-law's specific location </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Questions: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>From what you know of Longitude so far, is it possible for Isabella to be one of your frequently seen friends? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>So if you were to zoom in to San Diego at this point, who do you think would appear in your friend bar? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What do you think about not being able to automatically disclose your specific location for people with who you do not interact frequently? </li></ul></ul></ul>
    7. 7. Method: Usability Testing cont. <ul><ul><li>Task Set 3: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a) Ask participant to manually enforce a break. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Questions: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;This occurs in an unpredictable pattern and the message stays up for a random period of time, anywhere from minutes to, on small number of occasions, days.&quot; </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What does that mean? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What happens if you click Resume? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What do you think the &quot;Take a break from this friend&quot; menu item would do? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Would you still see your friend? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If you used this feature, what might your friend say upon not being able to see your location? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If the automatic random breaks were NOT a feature and you took a break from a friend, what might he/she say? </li></ul></ul></ul>
    8. 8. Method: Usability Testing cont. <ul><li>Contacting Users: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Xinru has a pool of users that she will contact through e-mail.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Qualified questionnaire to find participants. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Meeting Location: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Xinru potentially has a meeting room in DBH for use. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If not, we will be coordinating with users for an outside meeting time and location. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Meeting Time: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The usability testing sessions will take 30 minutes to 1 hour. </li></ul></ul>
