In our assignment have we been occupied with information availability. Our primary focus has been to optimize the information available for students, in form of events and organizations etc. We have created a platform, which helps students at Roskilde University to optimize their overview and improve the social relations on Roskilde University as well, through our idea. Our main motivation for this idea was our own experience at the beginning of this semester. We experienced a lack of structure in RUC’s online services, which made the students lose sight of the academic side of being a university student. The lack of structure took a lot of effort for students to learn to use, which made several students lose motivation.
For that to succeed, was it necessary for the group to follow up some criteria. One of the first steps in our project, was making a storyboard. The storyboard gives a good picture of how our idea is going to work. It shows a visual step by step example of the problem and how a student would use our platform. We use it for inspiration in order to optimize our platform. The reader gets visual example of how he/she is going to utilize it. The next step in the creation of our platform was making a survey and focus group. The main reason for using these methods was to give us better opportunities creating a platform which fulfill the criteria. The survey was used to collect student’s opinion on, the current information availability in Roskilde University. We kept these opinions in mind, in order to avoid creating a platform with the same default as the current ones. The focus group was the next step. We assembled two groups of 4 students for an interview. We showed the students our platform and questioned them about the structure, user-friendliness and the general overview in the website.
These methods guided us in making the most optimal website for our University.
