Today we presented our work like previous projects talking through what we did our research outcomes and findings.
Critique Presentation: wikiredesign
Some of the feedback I had got from the presentation;
“What if someone didn’t want to read the article without having the pop-up and highlights while looking through the page”.
One of these concepts for this was to have this as another tab, so you had the ‘Article’ Tab/Reader View, the ‘Talk’ Tab to show discussions, and what I call for this the ‘Visual Edit History’ to help go along side the ‘View History’ Tab. In my prototype it’s not currently like that as I took the article page itself and would be tricky to do.
Another one of the critiques I got from the critique was I didn’t have a established user need and I just had to create a case for who this concept was targeted for, to just help solidify the concept. I had a rough idea for what the user-base could be for users just starting to Wikipedia who don’t understand their Wiki markup and want a clear view of the edits without the coding in the text.
Based of the feedback I had got I think I want to next time for projects in general not be so focused on the research rather then the development, weaving in research that I found throughout the process. Furthermore, there are some things I would like to add to the prototype so I think I could do this through user testing and questionnaires to get some qualitative and quantitative data. Finally, to again make it clear who would want or need my prototype “Redesign”.
