  • Description

    Speed Dating helps to create low-cost, fast comparisons of design opportunities before the development of expensive prototypes.

    Short Instruction

    1. Use storyboards to prioritize user needs and determine the target environment to be simulated

    2. Build a fictional environment and low-fidelity prototypes for a given task

    3. Present a relevant scenario with a lead question to a small group of target users

    4. Ask each target user to play a role and conduct the given task by using the prototypes within the fictional environment

    5. Conduct follow-up interviews
