Lecture Six: User Scenarios

Scenario-map-example.png

  • Persona = fictional user of the interactive.
  • Scenario = the context within which they use it.
  • Similarly to how a script is written for theatre or films, designers must create a user scenario, which predict how users (user personas) may interact with an interactive in a particular situation.
  • It helps the designer understand what future users may look for when engaging with an interactive.
  • Every scenario is detailed in different ways, however they should essentially include the who, what, where, why and how of the usage.
