  10. Info Persona: Requirements • User • We will assign you three users from this class • Interview • Find a common need for all three • Prepare a set of questions (at least 15) that define the need and the behavior • Notes • Long form of the three sections of the persona (3 pages at least) • Persona • Use or find a picture • Use my template or come up with your own • Fill but do not overfill the page

  11. Info Need: Consider • Why does the user want this information? • What will they do with the info • Find one they want? • Complete a task? • Learn something? • To pass info on to others? • Do they want overviews? Facts? Procedures? Advice? other? • How much do they already know about this type of info? • What rational needs is it serving? • What emotional needs is it serving? • How would they judge a good from a bad item of this info? • Appeal • Trustworthiness • Authoritativeness

  12. Info behavior: Consider • What are their current sources for this info (i.e., your competition) • What do they know now that will allow them to find the items that they want? • Who would they ask and why? • Do they have a specific word or question in mind when they look? • Are they looking for a very specific item? • When they make a mistake what wrong items are they likely to land on? • Are they likely to click on something that seems sort of like what they want? • Are there items that they should see whether or not they know about them now?

  13. Info Type: Consider • What is a name that sums up the need? • Of all the ways to look at this info, what are the major attributes you need to have? • What is the tone of the info? • Who should the perceived author be? • Stay at a high level but be specific • Making it easy for the user to “use” the info • Are there “rules of thumb” or design principles for the info?
