Self Assessment 1:
With the UX internship starting there has been a lot of exposure in terms of practicing out each step on what actually UX is, basically putting all those online courses in actual practical use.
Things I’ve learned:
-UX Research and UI are two different horizons but go parallelly for building up a product with the user at the core
-Empathizing with the user on the platform and understanding the crux problem by conducting various interviews
-Making persona from those interviews (defining stage of the process)
-Finally ideating the solution from the obstacles
-Created the interview questions
-Brainstormed with more possible tasks and question-based user interviews
-Conducted and interviewed users
-Made persona from the interviews
-Created Team East Communication Channel
Meetings: I have attended meetings and except that taken interviews on various google meet:
6/8, 6/11, 6/15
Goals for the week:
Learn to create visual mockups on Figma
Tasks I have Done:
-I ideated the potential questions along with my teammate
-Also, scheduled interviews and interviewed the user on the STEM-Away as I love interacting with people and understand their view about their journey (UX Journey) on the platform
-Based on that, I proposed to make the persona from a resourceful site and that helped us to easily characterize the target user for the platform and I worked on creating the Technical Persona.
-Later on, I made the Empathy Map and the Bull’s Eye Diagram along with a paper prototype as the solution.
