Kennesaw State University Students Put Their User Interface Skills to Work

ETChster had the pleasure of working with a group of rockstar students at Kennesaw State University (outside Atlanta, Georgia) who are putting their user interface studies to work in the real world. The students are part of Shehal Shirke’s TCOM 2010 class and were kind enough to lend their skills to the ETChster team.

The students were tasked with designing a series of tests related to the various core features of ETChster: creating a user profile, adding unique items to the database, requesting stories, transferring ownership of an item to someone else and other tasks.

Their goal was to use statistical evidence to identify areas of the platform that could be more intuitive and to make recommendations on updates to improve the user experience, and more specifically with a view to visual design that can be understood cross-culturally.

The results were fantastic. The students set up detailed test programs and ran their experiments with fantastic documentation. As their final presentation, they created a report with screenshots and detailed recommendations. Their recommendations have already been implemented and well-received by ETChster’s global community.

Thanks so much, KSU! Neil Patel, Chris Valentin, Oscar Velasco, and Austin Hester.

Thanks to Nicholas Kratz of Tulane University as well!
