When remapping your website, having your users participate in a card sorting exercise is a good way to get some insight on how they would like see your future website. Card sorting is fast and easy, you can do a closed or open card sort. The close card sort give users content on cards and have them sort the cards into pre-defined categories. The open card sort Give users content on cards and have them sort and label the groupings, it’s exploratory. Having your user’s insight will make you new site mapping a lot easier, it will make the users feel more connected to the content.

I finally got to do what I’ve been waiting for since class started, I got to put my wonderful design thinking brain to work and created my prototype for the project. I was extremely excited to put my vision, my ideas to work but I quickly learned designing by yourself and designing with a team is 2 different things. I couldn’t just do I wanted, everybody had their own ideas they wanted to see in the prototype. Some I agreed with and some I didn’t. I presented them with different ideas which connected to our research but they weren’t getting through because our team was disconnected on what our goal for this prototype would be. I decided to suppress my opinions and just go with the flow. It worked out pretty well, and got a pretty good prototype. look forward to the next one.

Who doesn’t like a good story? Today I will be learning how to create to visualize a process. visualization is the most powerful delivery tool for information. It will be authentic, simple, emotional. By creating a user journey which is a process a person goes through in order to accomplish a goal, I will be able to create my storyboard. there’s 2 different strategy roles, current journey and the future journey, that one demonstrates the way users could integrate with your solution.

loving the boot camp!!!!!!!!!!!!!
