Project Description

(NOTE: Five (5) individual exercises are included as a video at the end of each section)

After you've finished the course, think about your favorite app or website, something you use daily or weekly. Using it as your subject of UX evaluation, consider and answer the following questions:

  1. How do you define a successful experience using it? What has to happen in order for you to feel good when you leave the app/site?
  2. Does that definition of success (and your stated goals) change from day to day — or from week to week? Are there certain times of year where what you need to accomplish changes?
  3. If so, how well does the site/app change to meet your changing needs or goals?
  4. If not, how could it change to meet your needs?
  5. What are the top three reasons you use this site/app vs. a competing product? What keeps you loyal?
  6. Did you use another site/app for the same purpose before this one? Was it better, worse or different – and why (or how)?
  7. What frustrates you most about this site/app? Why? How could that be fixed?
