Workplan for WeTech Technovation teams for week 5

Incorporating Feedback Lesson 5 0

Agenda Topics • Database • App testing and incorporating feedback Activities • Check-in (20 mins.) • Database (20 mins.) • Presenting prototype for testing – ( 60 mins.) • Sharing prototype for feedback (20 mins.) • Wrap-up – (10 mins.)

Check-in: paper prototype • Team members share paper prototype of their app idea • Explain the key functionalities and features 2

Databases • Organized collection of data • Intended to organize, store, and retrieve large amounts of data easily Examples: • iTunes is a database for all your music • Google has a database of websites which is used for Google Search • Facebook is a database of people 3

Databases in App Inventor • Reference to the colored Dots tutorial from last session: • If participants want to save data after the application is closed they must use a database Two types of databases: • TinyDB stores data directly on the phone and will only be used by that phone (hand-set) • TinyWebDB stores data on a web database that can be shared among phones 4

Data • Key – label for what’s inside • Value – data that’s inside We use the Key to look up the Value in the database Example: Phone Book (a database of contact information)  Key = name  Value = phone number 5

Database for App? 6 How can you use a database for your App?

Incorporating feedback: Making your App better • Feedback from potential customers will…  Tell you if your solution (app) to a problem is accurate  Suggest improvements that can be made in the design of the app  Suggest other features to add (either now or in the future) 7

Activity: Usability Testing • Test your paper prototype Ideas for testing paper prototype:  Create a short video walking the audience through the features of the paper prototype  Create a PowerPoint presentation listing each screen on a slide  Share the video/presentation with your survey respondents, friends and colleagues, WeTech team ( 8

Activity: Usability Testing • Create video/PowerPoint presentations • Decide on how will the prototype be circulated for feedback • Create timeline for collecting and incorporating feedback 9

Collecting Feedback on Prototype 10 Questions Notes Suggested Changes Is there anything that is unclear or confusing in the user-interface? Would your user prefer the app look or behave differently? Which features of your app interface and usability are of highest value to your target market? Are there any missing buttons or other content from your app? Did the user’s expectations differ from the intended functionality of the app?

Task List • Collect feedback for prototype • Each team member can be assigned responsibility for updating different prototype screens based on feedback received 11

Wrap-Up • Share a photo of your session with WeTech at • Encourage participants to join WeTech Technovation Facebook group to stay connected with the larger community -
