How are Fluid UX Walkthroughs Performed?
Fluid UX Walkthroughs are performed by reviewers with diverse areas of expertise residing at a number of different institutions. To ensure consistency of approach and results the following material has been created to guide their efforts.
UX Walkthrough Protocols and Checklists: These are the protocols (detailed steps and instructions) and checklists (criteria and points for examination) recommended to Fluid reviewers, as well as links to background and reference material.
The protocols and guidelines will continue to be refined as we learn from doing the hybrid inspections/evaluations.
Fluid Project Walkthroughs and Working Groups
Within the Fluid Project, walkthroughs have been performed by walkthrough working groups. Most of the groups have had representatives from two or more institutions, with each group focused on a specific product.
Products examined so far include uPortal, Sakai, and Moodle.
You can find links to the results of all UX Walkthroughs on this page. This includes the Pre-Summit and Post-Summit walkthrough results.
