Rideshare and delivery drivers usually don't know how much they'll earn before they accept a ride, making it difficult to know how long it will take them to reach their earning goals. EZ-Turn helps rideshare drivers earn extra money by connecting them with people who want to send their returns back to the store.
In this course, we explored the planning of a new venture related to human-centered design. We also examined relevant topics, such as team formation, user and market research, value creation, and the iterative demand planning for a new venture.
During the summer of 2017, I had the pleasure of working with Kay Tita for the Hack for Good event at Microsoft and Port-au-Prince Startup Week in Haiti. It was an unforgettable experience that challenged me academically, professionally, and spiritually. This is what Haiti taught me...
The objective of this course was to explore the empirical traditions that inform research and practice in HCDE. Topics included epistemological assumptions that underlie empirical research, empirical research methods, examples of empirical research, and ethical issues that underlie empirical research.
In this course, I learned how color, graphics and images can effectively visualize ideas and communicate concepts. I used visual elements of design, organizational principles of composition, and effective and meaningful communication to solve a series of abstract and applied problems.
This course introduced me to concepts and practices of engineering human-centered interactive systems and environments using the Arduino, a low-cost, open-source micro-controller, and Processing to construct prototypes that included electronic components such as buttons, switches, low-cost sensors, displays, LEDs, motors, and wireless communication modules.
This course covered some of the skills needed to see a design from project inception to completion, and most importantly, how a project is relevant to the overall business.
This course introduced me to major theoretical perspectives from the field of Human Computer Interaction.
This course introduced me to usability testing and to usability research as a user-‐centered design strategy.
CreativeMornings is a breakfast lecture series for the global creative community.
In this course, we explored the user-centered design paradigm from a broad perspective, emphasizing how user research and prototype assessment can be integrated into different phases of the design process.
