Insights

Refinements

I used Marvel to make the interactive prototype and asked users to use it.

  • Participants think this concept would be helpful.

  • But they do not understand the info of other users.

  • Setting part is not easy to find.

02 Testing for Long-term effect of studying together

Method 

Considering the long-term effect of learning together is hard to find from usability testing, I designed the long-term plan to observe whether the concept of learning together could help online learning or not.

I ask a friend Peng to choose a course - Computer Vision - from Udacity and to study together. I use dropbox paper to make the simple weekly punch page. And on the page, we two update our studying progress weekly.  

(To decrease the subject effect of the participant, the test goal was not informed to the participant. The participant thought we were just studying a course together.)

Result 

As a consequence, we have studied 69% lessons and we will continue studying the rest of the lessons.  In all, the solution works well to date!
