|Wireframe for one of the pages on my mini site|
It helped that I had spent the weekend creating wireframes for my site, so on Monday I was in about the right place. But I know that some people have started to feel the strain a bit. I have to say that the two hours on the train every day have actually been quite helpful. Time to work and no internet to distract.

We then looked at web forms. In my old role I created many web forms and yet I never thought about half the things covered in the lecture!

With clickable prototypes all set up we could then start testing and collecting feedback, before fixing any issues and testing again. Over the week I think I managed 4 iterations, but there are still things I could do to improve my prototype.
On Friday we presented our projects to the class which went quite well. I got good feedback with some good pointers for improving. And before we'd even had time to congratulate ourselves we were given the brief for project 3!

And on Wednesday we had another guest lecture. This time it was Amit Patel who is an ex UXDI student from this time last year and is now a Product Manager at ADIO (launching later this month). It was great to see how UX fits into his role and to see how you don’t have to have a job with UX in the title to be using it.

I look forward to much sleep this weekend to start week 4 and project 3 fresh and full of beans.
Read about why I left my job and Week 1 and 2 on UXDI.
