David Travis pictures for us 4 principles that should always be taken into account when it comes to usability testing. 

 

So, are the UX people you hired applying these principles?

Cognition & The Intrinsic User Experience | UX Magazine

Cognition & The Intrinsic User Experience | UX Magazine | Design For Social Change | Scoop.it

Over the past few years there's been a lot of discussion around whether an experience can be designed. But it seems like everyone's just getting hung up on semantics; an experience can be designed, but the user will always have the opportunity to experience it in a unique way. The reason every experience has the potential to be unique to the user is, in part, because cognition is unique to each user.

 

Cognition is about knowledge and understanding, so there's a ton of psychological principles that fall under the umbrella of cognition.

Why the best designers are also facilitators

Why the best designers are also facilitators | Design For Social Change | Scoop.it

"Designers end up facilitating a lot over the course of a professional life. The most common context is when you need to present and collect feedback on research you have conducted, a conceptual design you have created, or the final design that wraps up your project. These review sessions require you to facilitate a group of people through not only a series of findings or design but also the rationale for your end recommendation.

 

Having a good grounding in what it takes to be a facilitator will help these review sessions become more productive and gain you enriched feedback that will help you further mature your creations."

This is a basic Scoop It that is basically the framework to automate website usability. There is not a lot to say about this scoop it because summarizing it up in a couple words is that is a framework that is useful for website usability.

From User Experience to User Memory

From User Experience to User Memory | Design For Social Change | Scoop.it

Should we focus on user experience? ask Koan AT Claes. Nobel Prize-winning research points at the fact that memory wins over experience in people's mind. So should we focus on user memory instead?

 

"We all have two selves. Research has unmistakably shown that Self #1 experiences, while Self #2 remembers, and that it’s an either/or story. They can never do both. The ramifications for UX design, then, are profound, as UX tailors to the needs of Self #1 while all decisions within the experience—like: “Let’s do that again!”—are made by Self #2."

 

But after all, creating a memorable experience is part of the job, don't you think?

Both videos look at test out slighty different aspects of cameras, but the first video comparision method of having three cameras mounted on one rig, was a great idea, see for yourself by @planetmitch.
