Achievements

UX research

Neil Allison (UX Manager) appointed Nicola Dobiecka as user researcher for the project assisted by Andrew Ferguson.

Nicola has led user research interviews with key stakeholders, and interviews and workshops with students in late January and during February.

Incentives have been used to encourage student participation as per the project brief.

Stakeholder review

A stakeholder workshop to review the findings of user research took place on 27 February.  There was representation from: EUSA, CAM, Estates Servitors, Estates Security, IS Facilities, IS User Services Help Services, L&UC Centre for Research Collections, IS Applications Development, LTW UX team.

The review consisted of a presentation by Nicola, including video clips and artefacts generated in student workshop sessions. Following Q&A the latter part of the session was a discussion of what the user research insight means for the focus of the upcoming development phase, and to outline the specification brief for the build.

What has begun to come through is an appreciation that users would like to see Card ID on phone and Card swiping ability on phone accessible through the one interface if possible.
