Introducing the Practice1:31 with Nick Pettit
How do you let the user know that they need to fill in more information? And how do you persuade them to do that?
Hi, I'm Nick.
In this practice session,
you're going to get some practice prototyping user experiences.
I'll present you with a problem, and
I encourage you to see if you can work it out on your own before moving on.
Often, when you register for a service, you're just asked for
your email address and a password, maybe you'll be asked to create a username too.
But websites and apps that are heavily driven by your personal information
often need a lot more.
For example, maybe you're signing up for a social network and in order for
it to be really useful for everyone, they need to know
a little more about you such as your interests and maybe some photos of you.
Or perhaps you're signing up for a service that organizes your finances so
they need some things like your banking and credit card information.
But how do you let the user know that they need to fill in more information?
And how do you persuade them to do that?
For this practice, I'm going to give you a little bit less guidance because I
want you to think about this problem a bit more deeply.
I want you to create a small UI element,
something that might fit into a side bar, for example, that gives the user
some ideas about what steps they should take to complete their profile.
