Thank you so much for following along on our journey to recommend updates to the W3C specification template. With users around the world and a number of different use cases, it has been a challenge to fully grasp how and why the specifications are used today.
- I hope you’ve had a chance to review the results of our initial user survey.
- Our heuristic evaluation revealed the biggest user experience challenges.
- And 13 interviews with users like you revealed the top usability problems.
Very soon, we’ll post additional research deliverables — personas and journey maps — that will be used as tools to guide our design process.
It may seem like we’ve been quiet. The truth is, we’ve been studying. User experience design is as much about understanding our user as it is about designing clever, thoughtful solutions. As of spring break, the mid-point of the term, we’re moving into design.
Below, you’ll see the first evidence of our explorations. In the photo below, Ishita Ferdousi walks us through her preliminary wires.
We’re so excited to have reached this point — the point at which we will have something new to share. If you feel like it’s taken us a while to get to this point, trust that our research has garnered valuable insight that will inform our design.
Wireframes are underway, our class will meet Friday to review. We’re hoping to have initial designs to share at the beginning of next week. Stay tuned. Keep in touch.
