WEeK 1 : What does “User Experience” mean to me ?
As I said in this short video, I'm just a teacher. I haven't got so much experience as a webdesigner. I've already created websites by myself or with CMS like Wordpress and I always try to keep the design as simple as possible to help the user navigate easily.
Nowadays, we have to think web design as responsive and efficient to make the visitors get the information they want and feel what we want them to feel.
But UX is probably much more than that. Let's have a look further !
WEEK 2 :Defining the problem
I work as a teacher for an agricultural training school and this year, I'm helping students to create an online catalog for the plants they will sell in April. We are using Wordpress and Woocommerce for that because we want to be able to make the catalog become an online store next year and use it for the billing tasks.
I found this assignment very useful because it made me think about who can visit the website we are currently building and try to guess what they could want to find there. When creating a website, we're often thinking about what we want to show, whant we want to offer instead of thinking about what our visitors want.
