Through this 3 days course, course gives you the skills to conduct data gathering to create profiles, personas, and scenarios, as well as how to perform TASK ANALYSIS and create an information architecture that makes sense to your users. T hrough this 3 days course, course gives you the skills to conduct data gathering to create profiles, personas, and scenarios, as well as how to perform TASK ANALYSIS and create an information architecture that makes sense to your users. User-centered analysis is the basis for interface design that makes sense to the user. With a clear definition of user requirements, developers and designers are able to create effective and usable software interface designs. Objective Learn the methods and concepts to analyze user-centered requirements—the foundation for designing user-centric interfaces, applications, and websites. With over 15 years in the field of user-centered design, Mary's expertise includes all aspects of user- interface design: stakeholder and user interviews, personas and scenarios, task analysis, information architecture, wireframes, visual design, usability testing, and institutionalization of usability. Skilled in strategy development and design for websites, intranets, and applications.
Key Principles for User-Centred Systems Design
User-Centered Design UCD or User-Driven Development UDD is a framework of processes not restricted to interfaces or technologies in which usability goals, user characteristics, environment , tasks and workflow of a product , service or process are given extensive attention at each stage of the design process. User-centered design is based on the understanding of a user, their demands, priorities and experiences and when used, is known to lead to an increased product usefulness and usability as it delivers satisfaction to the user. The chief difference from other product design philosophies is that user-centered design tries to optimize the product around how users can, want, or need to use the product so that users are not forced to change their behavior and expectations to accommodate the product. The users thus stand in the center of two concentric circles. The inner circle includes the context of the product, objectives of developing it and the environment it would run in. The outer circle involves more granular details of task detail, task organization, and task flow.
The concept of user-centered systems design UCSD has no agreed upon definition. Consequently, there is a great variety in the ways it is applied, which may lead to poor quality and poor usability in the resulting systems, as well as misconceptions about the effectiveness of UCSD. The purpose of this chapter is to propose a definition of UCSD. We have identified 12 key principles for the adoption of a user-centered development process, principles that are based on existing theory, as well as research in and experiences from a large number of software development projects. The initial set of principles were applied and evaluated in a case study and modified accordingly. These principles can be used to communicate the nature of UCSD, evaluate a development process or develop systems development processes that support a user-centered approach. We also suggest activity lists and some tools for applying UCSD.
Design processes such as human-centered design, which involve the end user throughout the product development and testing process, can be crucial in ensuring that the product meets the needs and capabilities of the user, particularly in terms of safety and user experience. The structured and iterative nature of human-centered design can often present a challenge when design teams are faced with the necessary, rapid, product development life cycles associated with the competitive connected health industry. We wanted to derive a structured methodology that followed the principles of human-centered design that would allow designers and developers to ensure that the needs of the user are taken into account throughout the design process, while maintaining a rapid pace of development. In this paper, we present the methodology and its rationale before outlining how it was applied to assess and enhance the usability, human factors, and user experience of a connected health system known as the Wireless Insole for Independent and Safe Elderly Living WIISEL system, a system designed to continuously assess fall risk by measuring gait and balance parameters associated with fall risk. We derived a three-phase methodology.
User-Centered Analysis and Conceptual Design
In citizen science, user-centred development is often emphasised for its potential to involve participants in the development of technology. We have identified three types of digital user feedback using qualitative content analysis: general user feedback, contributory user feedback and co-creational user feedback. The results indicate that digital user feedback can link UCD techniques with more participatory design approaches. In the past two decades, citizen science has been more and more recognized as a valuable approach across a variety of scientific fields [Kullenberg and Kasperowski, ; Pettibone, Vohland and Ziegler, ]. The wider distribution of citizen science was supported by technological development, such as smartphone apps and online platforms, which facilitated expansion of the geographical scope and projects involving numerous participants [Silvertown, ; Newman, Wiggins et al.
The User-centered design UCD process outlines the phases throughout a design and development life-cycle all while focusing on gaining a deep understanding of who will be using the product. Design is based upon an explicit understanding of users, tasks, and environments; is driven and refined by user-centered evaluation; and addresses the whole user experience. The process involves users throughout the design and development process and it is iterative. And finally, the team includes multidisciplinary skills and perspectives.
This paper presents the evaluation criteria and process of the User Centered Design UCD framework for m-learning application development. Based on the proposed UCD framework we have designed and developed five mobile learning applications for various sectors. The main aim of this paper is to argue how the UCD framework as development methodology has been successful in developing robust mobile learning applications. The UCD framework for m-learning application assessments criteria is based on three evaluation processes. The acceptance of the application by target group usability assessments 2.
User-centered analysis provides the basis for designing software that makes sense to your users. Use proven, objective datagathering techniques to develop a clear understanding of who your users are and how they will approach your Web site or application. Create effective, usable interfaces the first time.
