Gadget prototypes and usability testing

January 10th, 2011 Jason Platts

In late-November/early-December the project produced paper-prototypes of some of the gadget ideas that were formed during the staff workshops.

The paper-prototype is available to download from the documents page in pdf format.

During December some usability testing was undertaken with end-users, taking them through the paper-prototype. Some of the key points raised were:

  • Getting information on events such as assignment deadlines into Google calendar was seen as useful
  • There needs to be help and support around using the gadgets
  • Alerting users when assignments were due was seen as useful, but there wasn’t necessarily an understanding of the features of the TMA gadget
  • It should be made clear what information is being shared with Google when using gadgets.
