Die UX einer Software wird durch die Summe ihrer Teilaufgaben gebildet.
Ein allgemeines Erscheinungsbild der Software wird gestaltet, einzelne Abläufe und Interaktionen iterativ entworfen, überprüft und ausgearbeitet.
Eine Anwendersoftware erleichtert und vereinfacht vielfältige Arbeiten für Benutzer.
Ziel des Moduls »Application Design 2« ist es, die wichtigsten Arbeitsaufgaben einer ausgewählten Anwendersoftware (Desktop) zu analysieren, um diese neu zu gestalten und erlebbar zu machen. Im ersten Schritt bestimmen die Studierenden dazu eine geeignete Applikation als Betrachtungsgegenstand.
Grammatisch is a desktop application which helps users learn and apply German grammar. The App offers different lessons sorted by level, with hundreds of different tasks for each topic. The application is particularly popular due to the variety of task areas and the structuring in difficulty levels.
To begin with, we took a closer look at the existing Grammatical Web App. The aim was to find out what functionality the app has and how it is structured hierarchically. Where is there potential for improvement and where does the app have problems? Aspects such as visual design and interaction also played a major role.
We created a flow from the existing screens to get a more accurate, clearer, and holistic picture of the app. This detailed analysis revealed a number of weaknesses, which we recorded in order to address and optimize them during the course of the project. It also became clear how single-layered, simple and functionally poor the existing app is.
Lola is a practical and methodical business women looking to increase profits at her companies German location. She accepted the opportunity to move to Germany because 15 years ago she had traveled in the country and has a basic understanding of the language. She hasn’t practiced the language in many years and wants the ability to brush up on her German skills.
As a professional woman moving to Frankfurt in 30 days, Lola wants to improve her German skills using the Grammatisch app. She downloads the app and begins to learn every day. Once a week, Lola receives a notification that the Weekly Challenge is available. She opens the app and works through the challenge to test her progress and expand her knowledge. Here she does unique question style activities. After completing the Weekly Challenge, she finishes the “Prepositions” course she started. After completion she makes progress on earning her XP points to get to her next level. Lastly we see a screen that shows her streak days which motivates her to keep showing up and learning the language.
