Some notes from our second meeting

I’m posting some notes from our meeting yesterday. After the groups presented the results of contextual inquiry, I introduced the persona method for representing different user types. Have a look at the presentation and example personas from some projects (LeContract, Sakai).

You can read more about the persona method from the following book chapter:

Cooper, A., Reimann, R., & Cronin, D. (2007). Modeling Users: Personas and Goals. In: About Face 3: The Essentials of Interaction Design (3rd ed.) (pp. 75–108). Indianapolis, IN: Wiley Publishing, Inc.

Additional readings are in our shared Dropbox folder. A few students have not sent me their Dropbox e-mail yet. Please contact me for getting access to the shared Dropbox folder.

Before our next meeting you have to complete Group Assignment 2.1: Personas. Please post your personas by Wednesday 26.02.

Next time I would like to have short presentations about the contextual inquiry and personas from these groups who didn’t present their work yesterday:

Yesterday I didn’t really have a chance to give personal feedback to group projects. In the coming days I will leave some additional comments to the contextual inquiry blog posts. If your group needs assistance at any point of time, please contact me and we can arrange a short meeting.

Please note that next time we will meet on Friday 28.02, not on Thursday. We will also move to larger rooms. I will post the room numbers next week.
