User research and Analysis
UX Design & Prototyping
Our Users are busy professionals that work long hours and struggle to allocate time for their language studies. They need a system to motivate themselves to learn new Vocabulary, easily and efficiently in their free time. They want to be able to communicate quickly when in professional and social conversations.
We believe that by creating a visually interesting Vocabulary app that allows our users to customise it to their needs, by including quick voice translations, a system to save, organise and sort their work/personal words and phrases and real-time conversations will help and motivate them to achieve their language learning goals.
Looking to understand my potential Users I have conducted three Interviews.
RESEARCH GOALS :
User Interview Profile: Federico
One of my Interviewees Profile and looking into the steps of what he does, thinks and feels when wanting to learn a language and using different apps/tools.
After Interviewing 3 potential users and analysing the research data i have put together a Proto Persona for Word Buddy.
31 YEARS OLD
FRENCH – Living in Germany
INTERESTS: Cooking for friends, shopping at flea markets, reading and taking yoga classes
After concluding with my Research findings I have started sketching for my three main features:
First Low Fidelity Sketch Wireframes for homepage & library
First Low Fidelity Sketch Wireframes for translation & word page
First flow with record and translate, view word meaning and access to the library for learning
The usability testing was performed using moderated in-person method. The participants tested the Word Buddy prototype via phone, using Adobe XD prototype app.
4 participants from my own network.
The usability test session lasted approximately 20 minutes. There was the time before and after for questions and answers and general feedback.
