User Experience Walkthroughs of uPortal, Moodle, and Sakai

What are UX Walkthroughs?

UX Walkthroughs are a combination of usability and accessibility heuristic evaluations with cognitive walkthroughs. The goal of Fluid's walkthroughs is to identify current user "pain points" in uPortal, Sakai and Moodle and ultimately to prioritize user interface improvements that will address these issues.

The protocol and guidelines are organic and will continue to be refined as we learn from doing the hybrid inspections/evaluations.

How Can I Get Involved in the Walkthroughs?

Everyone is welcome to help out with the walkthroughs. The Fluid UX walkthroughs can be a great way to learn more about usability and accessibility while experiencing first-hand the UI issues and strengths of your application. Here is how you can get involved:

  1. Join a walkthrough working group. There are active groups looking at uPortal, Sakai, Moodle, and accessibility.
  2. Learn more about our walkthrough process:
  3. Attend a walkthrough meeting and meet other walkthrough participants
  4. Start evaluating your application of choice!

Agenda:

  • Updates
  • UX Walkthrough Roadmap
    • Working groups around problem spaces defined at Summit.  How & when do we come back together?  Do we need a shared component roadmap or should it be left to the working groups?
    • Continue walkthroughs:
      • to identify components (pain points ripe for "componentizable" solutions).   How do new components get incorporated into current work?
      • create walkthrough reports for the communities (also deliverable for grant -- current state of usability & accessibility).  How do we define done in the sense of being ready to create synthsized reports to share out with communities -- specified number of people have completed walkthroughs?  Timeboxed deadline?  Interest in doing the synthesis and report writing?
