Scenarios and storyboarding provide a reality check for your designs, allowing you to see how the interaction will play out in a real environment. This course shows how to use these tools to map your ideas about what the user needs to their day-to-day tasks and workflow. Author Chris Nodder explains how to write scenarios and transform them into visual storyboards that show elements of the interactions that are hard to describe with words alone, such as emotion, action, detail, and progression.
Hello. I'm Chris Nodder. Welcome to the fifth installment of the UX Design Techniques series. In this episode, we'll look at the way scenarios and storyboards help you ensure that there are no gaps in your design before you start building it. This is the fifth course in a series that describes a set of techniques you can use to make your development process more user-centered. In this course, I'll show you how to turn the ideas you generated in your ideation exercises into a more complete solution that you can subsequently prototype and build.
After running design charrettes or other similar ideation exercises, you have some great ideas for how you could design the interaction of your product to remove the pain points that users normally experience. However, at this point, you don't know how well those design ideas match with users' real-world tasks. To help flesh those designs out into full solutions, it helps to create scenarios that detail how users would interact with the feature. Then, turning those scenarios into storyboards means you can list all the areas that need to be built in order to make the solution useful and usable to your customers.
It's time to take a look at the scenario and storyboard creation process. A well-thought-through storyboard helps you clearly articulate what you need to build to make users happy. So let's get started.
