I’ve added the details of this document to BlackBoard so that we can continue the discussion and collaborate as a class if anyone is interested.
Questions for discussion
These are my questions from the Week 4 Google Docs, in case they are not included in class maybe we can discuss them here?
- How big is your UX/UI team?
- Who do you consider your stakeholders and what kind of evaluation/testing do you do to ensure ongoing feedback?
- Is the iteractive container (computer buttons that expand) part of an open source frame work- is that polymer (https://www.workiva.com/content/wdesk-platform-b)?
- What considerations have your team made for 508 compliance and Accessibility testing? (not including performance, I did see it's SSAE 16 Type II compliant and looked at a couple of the case studies - https://www.workiva.com/customers/case-studies)
Reviewing Workiva's Website
- I noticed that their primary site is missing key components of accessibility compliance and web standards. I scheduled a demo, but doubt I will be able to do it before Friday's class. This may or may not reflect on the Workiva product line, but would be a consideration for me as a corporate client.
- The site is responsive
- The site is written on HTML5
- Uses http://ogp.me/ Open Graph Protocol
- I'm curious why they choose to use IE=Edge
- The site appears to use a framework
- They use Google Analytics on their main site, I wonder what kind of analytics they use for their products and how they integrate results.
- Built on Drupal
- Google Tag Manager Integration
- Using Clicktale
Other Topics for Discussion
Since we are on the topic of empathy in relation to UX, I found this article the other day (Seung Chan Lim, 2014). It's a well written piece that starts off with a story that leads into scientific research and evaluation of empathy.
