User Experience Five-Minute Flare: July 22, 2020, 2:38pm-2:45pm ET
User Experience Research Signup: www.D2L.com/UXResearch
As part of our product development process at D2L, we regularly consult with clients and non-clients to inform our product decisions. This helps us better understand our users so we can create products that transform learning.
Join us for one of our research studies. Some of our studies focus simply on better understanding your challenges and needs as faculty and instructors to help us plan our projects, design features, and interfaces. Other studies focus on testing user interfaces we’re designing or have already built to help us make our platform intuitive for users. We’ll also leave a few minutes at the end so you can share any general feedback you have about your use of Brightspace.
When you sign up for our participant database, we’ll contact you periodically to see if you’d like to participate in a particular study. Each invite will have a link to a calendar where you can find a time slot that will work for you. Sessions usually take an hour, and we offer a reward for your participation as a token of our appreciation. A team in North America provides the sessions, in English; we do our best to accommodate different time zones. We occasionally send short surveys afterward, with an offer of a reward.
If you have any questions about our User Experience Research Program or our participant database, please don’t hesitate to contact our team at ux@D2L.com.
