This weeks lecture was an introduction to user scenarios. This lecture also features an example of a user persona being applied to a scenario.
User Scenarios are basically stories that personas go through. They help designers:
- predict user interaction and their problem solving methods
- understand what users want when trying to complete tasks in your interactive/site
- have at least a visual representation of the problem
- test a site’s structure during development and deal with problems
Scenarios should also at least outline the: who? what? when? where? why? and how in terms of usage.
