In the midst of trying to shape a conceptual structure for communicating the Sakai 3 Design work, I’m riffing on an idea from the Drupal UX Project. At the top of all their pages they put:
Our UX Principles: 1. Make the most frequent tasks easy and less frequent tasks achievable. 2. Design for the 80% 3. Privilege the Content Creator 4. Make the default settings smart
I’m playing around with what they might be for Sakai. Here’s what I have right now:
- Make Good things easy, and the Best thing achievable.
- Design for user journeys, not institutional boundaries.
- Collaboration is core; administration is superficial.
- Make the user look and feel smart.
Update: Feel like I want to add a #5:
Learners are Researchers.
