Assignment 05: Reflection
A short paragraph or phrase on what you learned this week.
There has been some confusion on the order of documentation posts, so I merely spent time reorganizing and making some updates on existing posts. The previous comment by Joey on assignment #6 is now under the proper post as a copy. It is definitely my mistake to carelessly overlooked the assignment details. On another hand, I realized that my assignment #4 and #5 were in a combined form after looking at some other classmates’ work – and how I’ve been often thinking user research and design as one chunk of practice, but they’re not.
It’s important to conduct user research in isolated manner from the design work itself, especially to keep objective view in both areas. One of the best ways to increase accuracy is testing many users as possible – which wasn’t an option in my assignment #4, because I was the only user to form the persona figure. At the same time, I’m aware that this service is targeted towards very limited user pool: people who speak more than one language. However, I still decided to proceed the idea regarding that this class is more about “I” and personal data.
