- Indiana University (Bloomington, IN)
- Ph.D. project (co-researcher)
Problem: We wanted to ensure the prototype we had created was easy to use, effective for representing their devices, and meaningful.
This is a shot of the digital prototype. A version that does not record data still is available.
- Two usability tests for two versions of the prototype.
- Paper prototype evaluation using qualitative methods.
- Digital prototype, which was mixed implementing some quantitative and some qualitative metrics.
From paper prototype:
- Need to change terminology in parts of the prototype
- Need for a new system to search and select devices.
From digital prototype:
- while the interface could be improved, participants liked the prototype in general
- showed them a perspective on the devices they own that they did not have before.
Outcomes: This research led to a CHI poster as well as improvement of the prototype from the paper prototype to the digital prototype.
