As a companion to my previous post, "What Tools Do You Use to Test the Accessibility of Your Prototypes?" this design challenge examines concepts of accessibility in online UI/UX.
As students of IxD, we know that usability and accessibility go hand-in-hand to make excellent designs. But how do we begin the process of making great online designs that are accessible to everyone? One first step can be to learn about users' needs through their own experiences in a Think Aloud session. Here’s a great post by
From an IxD design perspective, what improvements, if any, to the Coursera course forum UI (or another forum you use) would you recommend for improving accessibility and user experience, based on Sonal’s post(s) and video? Respond by posting any of the following:
· a usability summary and/or critique
· a redesigned wireframe or sketch that indicates revised tab order or other assistive device interactions
· a video walk-through of the forum indicating opportunities for assistive redesign
· a link to an interactive prototype (via apps like Balsamiq, POP, JustinMind, Axure, etc.)
Good luck and happy designing!
