In this final two weeks of the course, we reviewed each others’ videos and had to make a report from them, making them the participants in our usability study. We had to review four videos, go through and find where they had problems, pull quotes, and find other uses measures to add in the final report.
It wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be, but it was difficult to know what to put into the report and what to leave out. The assignment also felt a little too short for two weeks, but perhaps too long for one. I think it has been good experience, though. It’s made me realize just how much stuff I’d have to sort through in a real study.
