Informal User Survey

Informal User Survey

Since I (Erin) don't have easy access to Sakai users, I surveyed my friends to get some perspective on paging other than my own. This may be a skewed view from a more tech-savvy set of users who aren't familiar with Sakai at all (but are with web in general and paging specifically). With that said, here are my findings.

In summary, many users finds it bothersome to click through multiple pages to view a list of items. Users will often set the number of items per page to the maximum to see more items at once. In a list where newer items gets added to the top of the list (email inbox, announcement pages, etc.) users tend to care less about the number if items displayed per page, because they are typically only concerned with the new items, which are all shown in one page. In a list such as the search results, where users are looking for particular items, more items per page is preferred. In an alphabetically ordered list (roster, address book, etc.), allow filtering (narrowing down the list as user types in more characters), unless paging by alphabet can be provided (problematic when the user re-sorts with a different column).
