February 19–25, 2017
I’m still working on two main projects right now: the Faculty Profile System & the (upcoming) Website Redesign.
Faculty Profile System
It’s wrap up week! After a slow start to the week, I have the following on my to do list:
- Write training email
- Prepare the training
- Document the system
All of this must be finished by Wednesday — when we have our first scheduled training session. Eek! 😬😬😬
In addition to the wrap up of the Faculty Profile system, I spent some time analyzing the user interviews I’ve been doing for our next project: the website redesign. In total, I completed 10 user interviews & had about 5 hours of audio recorded from those interviews. It was my goal this week to finish taking notes from the interviews, analyze the data & create a findings and recommendations report.
Here’s my steps for analyzing the qualitative data:
Step one: Take Notes
After each interview, listen to the recording while taking notes on post-its. One thought, quote, stat, point, etc. per post-it.
Step two: Find the patterns
Begin to organize the post-its by themes. Once a theme has been detected, write it on an index card! (Post-its stuck to the index card, naturally.)
Step three: Document the results
Write a brief summary report from the index cards, including prioritizing the results and making recommendations.
So that’s it for this week! Two months of Year of UX done 📅📅
