  1. Creating User Interfaces More presentations. Websites for regular & mobile devices NewsHandheld functions. Class: plan project. Homework: Work on handheld project.

  2. General assessment on User Observation studies • Good work and good presentations • Used terms/concepts (jargon, expectations, screen real estate, icons, experience, etc.) • Focused on site and tasks. Got beyond your expectations on how subjects would perform • Write-ups • Good as complete study of work • BAD as crisp, professional (I did this..) writing • DO look at abstracts (scholar.google.com) • Do practice formal writing

  3. Two distinct but related situations • Web sites that detect client hardware • Web sites for downloading to hand heldIncluding • Coordination of [ipod] broadcast • Synchronization of schedules

  4. News paper / news readers • [Regular] computer • Hand held

  5. Aside • This is something apart from issue of viability of print newspapers, relating to multiple issues • Revenue stream from • advertisements, especially classified ads • membership/subscription model • Market for general news versus filtered news (old term was 'push') • Generation of news from professional journalists, editors versus bloggers with various backgrounds

  6. Hand held products Individual functions plus combinations • Phone (phone plus carrier) • Voice • Text • Picture & video • Personal Digital Assistant (maintain calendar, notes) (PDA plus carrier) • Email, sharing • Digital camera • Still and video • Audio player • GPS (geographical positioning system)

  7. General plan • Decide as class on set of tasks/tests/activities/questions • Apply to various products • Each team (4?) have 1 to 3 devices and do same tests. • Combine data • Make rankings? • Note: computer information systems are hardware/software/people/procedures. A device may have a function that is not well-used….

  8. How to analyse / rate Should each team take 2-3 products (overlap?) • Compare across multiple functions • Compare for one main function • Phone • Music • Camera • PDA? • GPS?

  9. Assessment • Evaluate effectiveness & efficiency & satisfaction • Do the functions work? Do you use all/many/most functions • E.g., modes for camera; groups for phone • Are they easy to learn and how easy to do (without manual or on-line help or, for complex ones, with help) • Cost/benefit: do more expensive products in the product group provide more functionality? • ?

  10. Assessment, continued • The team needs to come up with the attributes to measure and the metrics (measuring scheme).

  11. Task & Presentation I want • Research (product reviews) and scholarly articles PLUS • The team's own assessment based on your experience and observation of others • Will work best if you own the products within your group I also want • Charts with pictures of screens, diagrams, results

  12. Classwork/Homework • Decide on teams: 2-4??? • Common tasks? • Decide overall approach • Combinations versus base functions? • Product sets • Advance notice: Do go to https://studio.tellme.com/ • Advance notice: uploaded guide to Final. May still make changes.
