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?
[MUSIC] 0:00 Hi, I'm Nick. 0:08 In this practice session, 0:10 you're going to get some practice prototyping user experiences. 0:11 I'll present you with a problem, and 0:15 I encourage you to see if you can work it out on your own before moving on. 0:17 Often, when you register for a service, you're just asked for 0:22 your email address and a password, maybe you'll be asked to create a username too. 0:27 But websites and apps that are heavily driven by your personal information 0:32 often need a lot more. 0:37 For example, maybe you're signing up for a social network and in order for 0:40 it to be really useful for everyone, they need to know 0:45 a little more about you such as your interests and maybe some photos of you. 0:48 Or perhaps you're signing up for a service that organizes your finances so 0:52 they need some things like your banking and credit card information. 0:57 But how do you let the user know that they need to fill in more information? 1:01 And how do you persuade them to do that? 1:07 For this practice, I'm going to give you a little bit less guidance because I 1:08 want you to think about this problem a bit more deeply. 1:13 I want you to create a small UI element, 1:16 something that might fit into a side bar, for example, that gives the user 1:19 some ideas about what steps they should take to complete their profile. 1:25
