Week 2

The readings for Week 2 revolved around research methods and ethical concerns with conducting research. Most of the materials presented in the articles were familiar for me because of my psychology coursework and experience as an undergraduate research assistant at the U of M. However, there were some methods that I wasn’t familiar with. Some of which included cognitive walkthrough and heuristic evaluation. 

We have begun creating research questions to help us with the research process. What we have to do next is identify which research method we should use to obtain data that allows us to answer our research questions. Additionally, we created a timeline for the project. 

We have also started learning Adobe XD to later use for wireframing. I am new to using Adobe XD, but I am excited to gain more knowledge and experience with the program over the next few weeks.
