User Research study:

Assignment for a course (T211 “Design and Designing”) with OpenU of Milton Keynes, UK.
The task was to select a device I interact with on a daily basis.
Considering a different target user group, identify improvements required to adjust the product to the new target user group.
The selected device was a PDA handheld computer.
To evaluate the target user group’s needs, the following methodology was used:

  • User research
  • Creating a user profile
  • Creating a user persona
  • User observe
  • User interview (“Think aloud”)
  • Concluding questionnaire

A person inexperienced with the chosen device was asked to do five predefined tasks with the PDA. While solving the tasks, the person should
speak out their every thought (“think aloud” interview). I recorded the interview, so I could follow the user journey.
Based on the recordings, notes and questionnaire, I summarized my findings on how to improve the device to make it accessible for another user group.
