In this final exercise, we had to conduct a usability test on a University website (Carnegie Mellon University), and suggest some improvements that can be done to improve the overall experience.
I chose my husband to be my tester user, because he is not quite related to the academic scenario and could be more representative of the feasible target, like a prospective student for example.
I had to supervise how he looked for the information of:
· How to get there: Closest airport
· Who is the mascot of the athletic team

In this exercise we had to do a reverse thinking process, in order to wireframe the UI of an existing app, dedicated to car sharing.
The aim of this whole assignment was for us to understand what is and what is not important when we wireframe, so we can focus on the relevant information at this point of the design process.

This assignment is part…
