Hi there. This is Dr. Anthony Chow and welcome to Unit 3. I’m here at Bur-Mil Park in Greensboro, North Carolina. And behind me is beautiful Lake Brandt. I only wish we had filmed this a couple weeks ago so you could see our beautiful fall colors.

All right. Let’s begin. Quality does not happen to the pond, but rather, is planned for and engineered. The ADDIE process reflects the core process for system design and developing highly useable systems. While not a rigid process, it serves as a framework for ensuring your designs and development are user centered and high in both utility and ease of use. This unit will walk you through each phase of this process, and we’ll design a web space along the way.

It is broken up into six sections, and these sections will be hands-on, where you will design, develop, and usability test a web site from the ground up.

  • Section 1 is all about the classic systems model referred to as ADDIE for Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate. And how I’ve adapted it to serve as a web design in Pervasive Usability process.
  • Section 2 will take a closer look at the analyze phase and what is actually involved in trying to understand users in a valid, reliable way.
  • Section 3 will look at the design phase and the iterative cycles that are necessary to ensure that your designs are accurate and refined, based on user and organizational needs.
  • Section 4 is the development phase where we need to go ahead and start putting our information architecture and wire frame maps into actual web pages.
  • Section 5 is show time where I want you to implement and actually roll out the work that you’ve been doing.
  • Finally, Section 6 is the final yet continuous step where you evaluate your site through formal usability testing.

Hey, Spiro. Ah, great idea. Let’s see if the fish are biting today.
