Fluid Course Administration & Content Management Personas

Overview

Excerpt

The Fluid Course Administration & Content Management Personas are models representing the information gathered during the user research done in the Fluid Fluid Content Management Research project. They follow the Fluid Persona Format, and are used to inform the design and development

...

of Fluid Components.

These personas will also be useful to communities working on projects in the Course Administration & Content Management domain. We anticipate the need to add additional information to these personas for more focused domains (e.g. Collections Management), and they will likely evolve over time.

Types of Fluid Personas

The design of all Fluid Components will be informed directly by the Primary & Secondary personas above. See the Types of personas section of the Personas for more information on these persona types wiki page for definitions of primary & secondary personas.

Auxiliary personas are a special type of persona we created. They do represent models of users we saw in the field, but we don't believe are different enough from the primary and secondary personas that it is helpful to keep them in mind in the Course Administration & Content Management domain. However, we are making them available so that they can be used in a particular problem space as necessary. For example, Michael Demsky, the Departmental Support Person, is not that different from Anita Stalmach, who does Departmental Pedagogy Support. However, if there was a use case that involved this person doing a lot of section management, it may be more helpful to use Michael.

Additional personas may also be created based as additional further user research is done (or as provisional personas if user research is not an option). This may prove necessary if we realize we don't have enough information on users in a particular problem space. For example, if we are working on a reorderer component in a context/problem space where reordering large collections of images is the primary use case, we may want to have a professor in a media-heavy discipline, such as Art History or Architecture, as a primary persona to inform our design & development process. 

Some of these personas are provisionalmarked as "Provisional," which means they were not based directly on this user research, but represent user types we know from previous research are important and should be represented.
