Blog Post 5: First Prototype Interview

This may be Thanksgiving week, but it doesn’t mean that the work is over! The opposite, in fact. I spent the last few days of my break interviewing a friend for HowToCollege, not to mention doing other work. I was lucky enough to have a friend with me to complete both sets of interviews.

This was my first-ever type 2 interview, meaning that we looked at the app prototype. What i remember from this was that the individual screens did not open up by themselves, so participants were only able to page through them, and not see them large. We never resolved this issue.

I noticed that we benefited from recording the session where I watched participants work through the prototype, instead of just asking them questions at the end. Sometimes, the questions that they asked were more helpful than how they answered the questions at the end.
