Use scenarios

November 16, 2011

Scenarios can help uncover gaps in solutions and potential usability issues.

Motivation

  • What prompted the persona to embark on the scenario

Context

  • Where is the persona while the scenario takes place?
  • Does the context change over the course of the scenario?
  • Who else is involved?
  • What other devices are involved?

Distractions

  • What kinds of distractions or interruptions typically occur in the scenario?
  • How does the persona deal with such distractions?

Goal

  • What is the persona’s goal in the scenario?
  • Is it information, an artifact, an emotion?
