Designing an App: Initial Research

Moving from Yello Sub and into our next design problems project, designing an app to solve an everyday problem. I interviewed my roommate, Erin. check out my model and diagram summary on the embedded issuu page.


  1. I really like to see how your brain works--if you can come up with an alternative to boring power point presentations/lectures, you will be a world hero! People in business complain constantly about boring and ineffective PP presentations in meetings. I believe the reason it is so popular is because it's easy to use and if you are NOT a good public speaker, you don't have to say anything--just keep clicking to keep the slides moving. Too bad we aren't closer--I would love to talk about this over a cup of coffee or a beer!

  2. I would love to hear your ideas! Public speaking, especially in a school setting, is tricky. With the increasing integration of technology in the classroom, I really think I could make a difference in learning difficult material in a big lecture.
