We will provide them with a instructions on areas of the system they should test, and what they should observe. This is split into three parts: interface comparison, general interface evaluation and concept evaluation. Interface comparison The participants are given two links… Read more →
We have now implemented a prototype with most of the features we discussed in the design. The following video gives a demonstration of this prototype: This prototype is available here (use the username “test” and password “test”). Screenshots [portfolio_slideshow] Note: the names of rooms and users are chosen randomly by implementing a random words generator.
