Making Video...

Making a video as of now.

Beggining the Implementation Stage! :)

The Implementation stage is going to start now. It will involve the filming and editing for a complete 8-10 minute video. (scheduled to be done this weekend)

Taking a break for the exams :)

User feedback...

posted May 25, 2013, 7:46 PM by Raymond Han

Well, the emails turned out to be partially successful, in total, a 40%-ish response rate of which all were quite useful inputs,

However, as the marking criteria states "cross section of the school population", I may need to redo my survey as it reached all my friends, as opposed to giving an accurate portrayal of responses from potential users in the school.

Apart from that, everything else seems fine, and I will complete my user documentation and feedback proposals by the end of today.


Further project "work"....

A period was allocated for project work, but, as the 6-7 half yearly exams dawned upon us, I was not in the mood for working on my project (not to mention, I have already finished the majority and am just waiting for the user responses). It was also inconvenient in that I did not bring my video along with me on USB.

However, I did have a look at the past rubric for marking the project, and realised that there were 2 prototypes that need to be made. Which got me thinking, how am I supposed to do that? Fetch an earlier copy of my prototype?

EDIT: Received the new marking rubric that will explicitly focus on the current project. Only one prototype needs to be made, but I discovered that a great emphasis was placed on user response, feedback and documentation. Hence, I may look into adding greater detail into my surveys, or increasing the methods of distribution, in order to gain better and higher quality user feedback, so that my project can be improved as a whole.

This will be what I have to do in the following week, and hopefully all the user feedback can be received before the due date creeps in.


Prototype finished

Finished the prototype now; my progress report (due after the implementation stage) has been updated consistently, and I have finished logging my activity up until the implementation stage, in a formal report.

The website has been polished now, with an easy-to-follow flow of information conveying all my main ideas behind the mystery. I will be reviewing the quality of the mystery itself, as I may seek to complicate things in order to allow for an expansion of multimedia representation, and create a more enjoyable user experience. However, this will probably be altered by user responses, so it's not of great priority currently.

As for the surveys, I have distributed them via email, and will allow for 1-2 weeks of response. I will probably be checking after 1 week to estimate response rates, and possibly alter my plan if it does not turn out as I expect ie. very low/bad quality of responses. In that case, I will resort to printing the surveys out, or maybe just interviewing potential users in the school by word of mouth, as they may feel more comfortable doing that.

All for now,

Finalising the prototype

posted May 7, 2013, 3:27 PM by Raymond Han   [ updated May 25, 2013, 6:51 PM ]

In total, I have created:

1 Video (2-3 minutes in length)
1 website.

Both have been made to contain a sufficient amount of detail so that the video could proceed as it is, or could be accompanied by a website.

As of now, I am leaning towards using a website as my main form of representing the mystery, as it would be better able to convey all 5 types of multimedia, as video would usually be primarily based on animations and video, as opposed to numerical/text etc.

Therefore, I will be performing more work on my website, as I would like it to be presentable by the conclusion of the prototyping stage, in order to go further, such as through adjusting things from user responses, without any greater delay. The video will probably be embedded in one of the pages to my website, and I am thinking of placing my whole mystery onto the site via links. I think that multimedia may be better represented if a website directed the user to external sources, which each may show a form of multimedia that represents itself ideally suited to the specific clue given.

My potential user survey has been completed, and I am currently looking at distributing it via email, as this seems to be the easiest and most convenient method. However, as I realised earlier, survey emails possibly fall into the category of spam and receive little attention (I never/always delete any surveys i get, from personal experience!), I may be condensing it and printing the survey out in order to acquire faster and better responses/response rates.
