User-centered development of dynamic modules : A study based on agile development (English)
Abstract [en]

This report describes the process and steps in detail that needed to be taken in order to meet the end users’ needs. The purpose of this study is to develop a dynamic module based on user-centered design (UCD) for Pulsen’s (pulsen.se) new website using the con-tent management system (CMS) SiteVision. UCD integrated with agile development methodologies is an effective combination to increase the focus of a development project on the end users’ needs. In this study we show the pervasiveness of the two methods combined in a development project. The module’s functionality is to allow the end user to quickly - and without effort - sort and filter news articles, events and job postings into lists that will be embedded and reusable on their new website. Manual adaptation of custom modules was configured directly through JavaScript code which made them error prone, causing the modules not to function properly. To combat this problem, we used contextual inquiry (CI) along with usability testing as data gathering methods with both Pulsen’s editors and external participants. The usability tests were used to plan and evaluate the functionality of the prototype in order to make it as user-friendly as possible. The study resulted in an interface with user defined variables derived from a JavaScript module.
