Gadget prototypes and usability testing
January 10th, 2011
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.
