Thanks for an awesome class. Much love.
Anyway, here is our feedback from the critics for our final iteration.
– Terminology of Bookmarks is quite awkward. Consider something like “My Videos”.
Look and Feel of the learning experience:
– Stock photos look corporate and stale
– Lists are boring (explore and gamify this experience)
– It looks like a podcast list, is the learning experience predominantly through listening, watching? It would be interesting to consider other accessibility points as well (as Lynda.com also has the video transcription to follow along).
– If the video is the main learning experience, consider minimizing list information, and maximize views of video.
Design Intent and User Flow:
– Reexamine user flow as there are some dead ends. We notice that in our app, we give users the option to share their completed learning paths on LinkedIn. There is an opportunity for an auto-share or suggested share, after a learning path is completed.
Which brings us to the question, how can we make the learning experience fun?
In the future, we want to implement a fun learning experience.We will explore new ways of experiencing these paths (as they range from 10-68 hours).
Blades of Brim
Brim is a mobile app game which kind the same with temple run. But I like this game more in recent time is because instead of just running and dodge from enemies, players can attack the monsters actively. Besides, you also can get different items as well as coins to get new weapons and skills. More important, there will be different special challenge each month, according to different challenge topics, this game will have different scene design to fit that topic. Also, they will offer special items for this challenge, if you get enough special items, you have the right to exchange special characters or weapons which encourage you to play more
1′ Linkedin part looks doesn’t make sense.
2′ Should think about how to encourage them to learn more courses, not only upload to Linkedin.
1′ Usually there is no icon with menu part on apple tv
2′ It doesn’t show Tv focus clearly.
3′ Think about how to design tv controller movements.
This is our first Lynda Learning Path’s App
Here are some user insights:
1) Saving individual courses vs. entire learning paths
2) Button sizes should be tappable
– “Add to favorites” button
3) Learning Paths should be prioritized over individual courses, thus it may be beneficial to explore this as our “Home” page.
– What does this look like?
– Users have a tendency to view their own profile more than others. How can we make this space provide the feeling of accomplishment and encouragement to achieve more (CTA – try more learning paths)
5) Consistent Tab Bar
7) Examine user flow for Free Trial
8) Does “Home” have to be called “Home”? Consider a new verb that instantly associates with what users expect.
9) Streamline the business learning path for an iPhone app, while the programming learning path can be demonstrated in our Apple TV app.
– Improve upon these insights
– Create an Apple TV app
1. Reward System: Explore Experticity, Duolingo
Once the user completes a learning path, they are able to have this as a credential synced to LinkedIn. We are still considering how this “syncing” will happen, and how it would feel like.
2. Adding Learning Paths vs. Courses
We planned to have the ability to add an entire learning path or individual courses. Initially we identified these two decisions with two different icons. However, it was confusing for the user, so we will reconsider this.
3. Semantics (Bookmarks vs. Favorites)
4. Reconsider the User
– IPhone vs. Apple TV vs. Laptop vs. IPad.
– Who is our user that we want to focus on?
Some classmates brought a great point about how they sync their phone to their Apple TV to watch and follow Lynda coding tutorials with their laptops (to code with) and the instructions on the AppleTV (Two screens to increase learning efficiency and productivity).
– IPhone: Perhaps focus on Business Courses etc. (More convenient for people to walk to without needing extra utilities.)
– Yue and I will try a learning path to see what quizzes are needed to complete one.
Note: Automatic resizing is not simple. Focus on one interface on one medium.
5. Redundant Tab
Is it necessary to have a courses tab, when these can be stored in “Home”?
user feedback for paper prototype of Foodplay:
- The product of ”Foodkit” seems not very clearly now, It would be better if remove this part.
- not sure what should show in “reward” tab, all reward items or what reward that user already gets?
- There is supposed to have a “skip” button so people can view other pages first and then decide whether they want to sign up.
- UI design of some page can be better improved. The landing page looks good but some content page still need polish.
- The home page looks much better, the contents are attractive.
- Need more research to figure out how many users we can get, how many people will interest in this activity.
