Evaluating University course search: - development of a new user-centred interface concept
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Findwise is a Europe-wide producer of search solutions. One of their search solutions included a university course search interface, which needed revision due to a loss of coherence in the structure. This had negative impact on the simplicity and usability. The thesis describes a process for improving the interface design and user-friendliness of the course search. The search interface previously developed by Findwise have been studied and evaluated in order to develop and bring forward a proposal for a new interface design mock-up. In addition to this, two areas have been explored in more detail; search engines and Human computer interaction methods.
The resulting proposal consist of usable methods for structuring course search interfaces, creating a more intuitive new design.
