Let’s take a few minutes to review the status of each of your projects. Let’s review each of your Usability Reports.
With your group, make sure your team pages are up to date. I’ll come around and review each your team pages.
Minimally, you should have links to:
- Document Concept
- User Personas
- User Stories and/or Jobs
- Flow diagrams
- Paper Prototypes
- Usability Reports
Please make sure your Team Page presents well, you should be using this to get feedback from your partners and will use it as the starting place for your final presentations.
Why document your projects?
What kinds of things should you document?
- Equipment requirements
- Architectural requirements
- Software requirements
- Maintenance procedures
- Update procedures
- Expenses and estimated budgets
Project Documentation List
For each member on your team, take turns role playing that you are your client partner. As the client partner, imagine what you would need to know if you were to actually try to implement your team’s project. Start a list with the first role player, adding to it with each additional role player.
Draft Project Implementation Documentation
- Create a new Google Drive document and title it Project Implementation Documentation
- Scour over your list, looking for common themes
- For each theme, create a heading in your document; for example, if your project requires usernames and passwords to be able to use it, include a section on user names and passwords
- Other headings might include, hardware requirements, software requirements, maintenance requirements, marketing and promotion, etc.
Continue iterating on your projects with your team. If you need to feedback on any of your refinements, ask another team to help test using the usability testing procedures we worked through last week.
Project Implementation Documentation (As a team)
With your team, continue refining your Project Implementation Document.
- Make sure you have a heading for each important group of tasks and considerations your client will need to set up and implement your project
- Include a draft narrative for each item in the list you developed in class
- This is a draft document you will be updating as you continue to refine your project
- Consider using diagrams, screenshots and data tables
- With your team mates assign ownership of each section of the document. Who will be responsible for keeping this section of the Project Implementation Documentation up to date?
Design Notebooks (Individually)
- Create a new slide in your Design Notebook and title it “Implementation Documentation”
- Write a brief paragraph outlining which sections of the Project Implementation Documentation you will be responsible for keeping up to date
*Submit the link to your Design Notebook to Canvas before we meet again next week
