Hi, I’m a Lecturer in Interaction Design here in Australia and I have a research project that is about ascertaining the value of novice UX research en masse. I would love to use this approach to the Discourse platform if that would be welcome.
Effectively about 100 of my university students would provide their time as “swarm” UX research, which the research team of more experienced designers would then collate into a report for you.
The aim of the research is to see if large numbers of novice UX designers can provide significant value to medium/large projects (like Discourse). Questions are:
- Would this be of value to the Discourse community?
- We would probably focus on either mobile or desktop, so advice on which would be preferred would be good.
- We would need to interview a couple of the core Discourse team in the context of the report to see what the perceived value was.
Any feedback on this idea would be much appreciated.
(Aside from this being useful research, I love the Discourse mission and hope that this project might be helpful in some way to this community)
