|Key tasks||Cathy Zhu||Anita Lillie||David Rockwood|
|Update Rose, Bud & Thorn status|
|Ease (1 difficult - 4 easy)||prefer prototype 1. confused by update all.|
Individual updates is better for R, B, and T. More likely to update as it happens, not all at once.
Still, like all three at once. Seeing all three at once >> seeing a history.
|Enjoyable (1 not enjoyable - 4 enjoyable)|
|Browse friends' statuses|
|Ease (1 difficult - 4 easy)||prefer prototype 2. scrolling is easy.|
combination of swiping up & swiping across.
fill screen with R, or B, or T.
swiping up/down is R/B/T switch, swiping left/right is person switch.
neat: you can look at all the roses! exploring a grid.
(have some default images?)
*would need a tutorial. a tiny red/green/blue thing to indicate R/B/T?*
|Tiling is beautiful for looking at others|
|Enjoyable (1 not enjoyable - 4 enjoyable)|
|Have you done a similar activity in a group?||Yes. Peer counseling class|
I have a friend who would love this.
Throughout the trip: what did you learn? what were you surprised by?
what are you looking forward to?
Journaling & reflection too. (All pen & paper)
|What do you like/dislike about this experience?|
|What do you like/dislike about this interface? P1 & P2|
|How can we make this more intuitive for new users?|
|Would what would you like to see as your home page? P1 vs P2|
prefer prototype 2, seeing friends' statuses OR writing today's status.
see activity on my post first, then friends' R/B/T, then update my won
Broadcast what's going on with you. Prefer to update my RBT quickly rather than look at others'
|Give me an example your Rose, Bud, & Thorn for this week? Do you find this useful for communication?|
|Do you see yourself including media in the posts? What types of media? Photos/Videos/Audio, your own/internet|
Just text. OR, while eating ice cream, post rose during day.
OR voice for thorn. but most likely use text.
Would put pictures of kids if I'd taken pictures. All doing handstands.
This would motivate me to take a picture. (like photo-a-day)
Could I tag this as a potential rose?
Aggregate all roses/thorns, then post your best.
OR cover photo + best
|Sunburned on Monday. Photo of the sunburn. "Ouch. :("|
|Given that you might have several groups, would you like to post selectively?|
|How frequently do you see yourself making posts?||Depends on friends. Check it daily. Most likely weekly.||Start with weekly. Not too intrusive|
|Do you see this as a synchronous event in the group?||asynchronous is good.||Instead of being reminded, I self-initiate|
|Prototype 2||Prototype 2||Prototype 2|
|I like the home page. It's beautiful. I want to click things.||I'm used to seeing a person's icon|
I prefer seeing all three at once more than one at a time.
It's nice to see how they relate to each other.
Got bored - took too long for the video.
The video media doesn't seem connected to the caption.
What influences me is the snapshot. YouTube's isn't great.
Keep clips to 1min?
I want my swipe to go home.
|Bottom 3 circles (iPhone carousel) could be R, B, T||Canvas that you can explore: zooming in & out on people|
|It's not obvious what's the rose, bud, or thorn.||Plus sign isn't clear. Would just type.|
Tiles interface reminds me of Microsoft; like it.
If mosaic could be changing among R/B/T...cool!
I want to see how my friend is now, not necessarily their history.
I'd like to be able to see history though.
|Which picture for the mosaic square? Rose, or you pick it?|
I don't know what the plus sign means.
Is it that I should enter my rose, then click plus to submit?
Maybe add help text.
|Limit on group size|
|Maybe submit one of R/B/T and not all three?|
Mosaic is nice, but it's not as fast.
Maybe view everyone's roses, then everyone's thorns?
Don't want to keep bouncing back between home & person
|Want to be able to post things privately. Isolate R/B/T||How to respond: not likes, but resonates? Comments?|
|Use case 1: variant of the status update.|
|Use case 2: taking stock of my day.|
|Prototype 1||Prototype 1||Prototype 1|
|Unclear that the R/B/T are clickable|
How is editing them all different from editing one at a time?
We only really need one interface.
|Like the idea of seeing groups at a glance|
Really appreciative of ability to choose which groups.
Maybe as a dropdown menu? (separate submit button)
Seems nicer to start from scratch when you set your R/B/T
(as opposed to seeing the last one you had)
|Interface is a little too much like WeChat. Prefer tiles.||I do like the idea of a timeline, getting to look back.|
|"Update-all" is confusing.|
Groups: overall in my life, what is the one R/B/T?
I wouldn't need this level of granularity per se...
Instead, I'd just have a small audience of 5 people in my close-knit group.
1) Update RBT all at once, or one at a time?
Separate but sequential.
Also, preview and then share.
2) Sharing settings separate from posting.
Consider that YOU want to choose exactly who's in your group.
It's not about having a group you can't admin.
|If there are a few people, do you even need a feed?|
|Maybe a specific time for updating? Or they expire after a week?|
Make sure to build in the interaction. Help, console, props.
Use media for responses? Think of case when someone dies
