User testing intranets with paper prototypes
Monday, December 06, 2004
The first time I saw paper prototyping, I was sold. Using simple freehand sketches, the application development firm brought clarity to a complex inventory system. The prototypes revealed the need for new features we hadn't even considered. And it gave us confidence that the end product would be user friendly before a single line of code was written.
How is paper prototyping done?
Paper prototyping helps you discover how users will see your intranet's interface. It can also help you generate system requirements. It's fast and it's cheap. Try it for designing your next new intranet application.
