Focus of the study
To understand the following:
- Current Pain Points with Drupal
- Feedback on Spark
- End to end process of content creation process
- Applications used in conjunction with Drupal
Have you ever wished core would track the date/time a node was published, instead of just when it was created and modified? Well, now is your chance! There is a patch in the issue queue, but it needs review and time is running out before feature freeze. Please get involved.
I know, its been rather quiet from us since the announcement of the Drupal SiteBuilding Usability Initiative some two+ weeks ago. Well, BADCamp got in the way and Michael and Doug was busy mingling with all the amazing Drupalers there for starters. While they where doing that, I spent my time learning and configuring Open Atrium as we have chosen it as our collaboration platform for Drupal SBUI.Read more
Bojhan and Dharmesh recently conducted a 6-participant moderated usability study on the new toolbar. The design was tested on desktop and mobile (and on the iPad in some cases).
Summary of findings
Overall, the toolbar prototype tested well on desktop and iPhones.
“This is a big improvement from where we are at [right now]” (P4)
Most of the participants (4 out of 6) had positive reaction. The rest of the participants (2) had a neutral response to the change. The mobile version was significantly better received than the desktop experience.Read more
This past week, I was in a google+ hangout with a group of very tech savvy individuals. To my surprise they were having a discussion concerning Drupal.Read more
We are planning on doing some usability testing of the mobile prototype, below we have outlined the test plan. Since we haven't tested this prototype much, we are focusing our initial test plan primarily on finding out how they experience the navigation - not necessarily how they experience the admin theme.
Name of the project: Toolbar testing
Type of study: Moderated
Focus of the study: To get answers to the following high-level questions:
I'd like to invite you to use UCDmanager. It's a personal project that allows to manage different usability techniques:
I think it may be interesting to this group because it's based on Drupal, and because it allows to perform usability techniques in a collaborative way, that is very important in open-source developments. You could use it, for instance, to planificate, perform and communicate the results of usability evaluations of Drupal core or modules.Read more
I've in the middle of a series of 6 posts presenting my views and ideas on how to make the Drupal Learning Curve less steep by better understanding and improving the site builder experience.
Its my opinion that by doing so it will also make it much more easy to not only build sites with better usability/UX for users, but also sites that are easier to maintain and expand with new features.Read more
On Thursday, March 22, 2012, @lisarex and I ran a BoF to talk about Usability. First of all, we would like to thank every one who could make it to the session. For the others who could not make it, here is the summary from the session.
Since the group was a mix of new and existing contributors, the focus was on what we “the usability team” could do to make things better for the community.Read more
I'm new to the Drupal UX community, but not new to Drupal or User Experience Design. (I've added some info to my drupal.org profile for those interested in reading more...) I just finished speaking with yoroy about diving into Drupal UX work and the topic of Account Management came up. I mentioned how much it annoyed me and, lo and behold, it turns out that it's a pretty common pain point around here. So, I thought I'd kickoff my inaugural journey into doing UX with the Drupal Community with a discussion about Drupal's Sign In, Registration, and Account Management interactions.Read more
