Udacity Design Sprint Day 4 — FINALE!

My User Test format:

  1. Review company — Ooup is an online scooter rental company
  2. Review long term goal of the company — In 2 years, Ooup will be the go to scooter rental name more convenient than public transport
  3. Review sprint questions — 1) Can we become the default name for transportation? 2) Can we be more convenient than public transport? 3) Can we increase safety so Ooup is safer than public transport?
  4. Check out the storyboard, specifically key screens selected by the team
  5. Check out the prototype

Outcomes of the User Test:

  1. Top Trends — Unclear how Ooup is safer than public transport. Unclear if Ooup is best for commuters (most efficient) or international travel.
  2. Long Term Goal Reflection
  3. Sprint Questions + Answers
  4. 3 Recommended Next Steps

My process for virtual user tests:

  1. Find user tester
  2. Send a calendar invite for mutual time with google hangouts attached
  3. 5min before meeting— download/have accessible Storyboard and Prototype (I combined both into 1 pdf to be easier)
  4. Intro yourself, Udacity’s Design Sprint course, and your goal (to achieve feedback on Day 3’s prototype)
  5. Switch the camera’s focus from your face to the laptop screen where you the digital Storyboard/Prototype opened already
  6. Write the feedback and reactions of your user tester by noting slide number and interesting comments

My 4 user testers! (looking very candid)

Cincinnati + Vancouver
Seattle + Miami
