When: Every Thurs during the semester from 12:30p – 1:30p ET
Where: For Zoom info, register here!
Speaker: Bill Killam
The Colorectal Cancer Risk Assessment Tool redesign project is a good, albeit rare, an example of a “soup-to-nuts” project. The project involved literature research, interaction design, and iterative design as well as both qualitative and quantitative evaluations. The origin of the project provides some insight into when and how user experience design issues become the focus of a project in the corporate world. Sadly, it also shows when and how user experience design is forgotten in the corporate world.
