Abstract [en]

There are many different techniques and tools to make education more diverse. Finding information about these techniques and tools though is not always easy. To help teachers in their education, this project is about creating a website that functions as an online catalog of tools and techniques. Our main focus is the interface of the website, making the catalog easy to use. The target group is teachers at Uppsala University.

To find the best implementation the design of the interface, we began by creating different user stories and building a prototype. The prototype was tested by friends and family of the project team. With feedback from the test, the interface was built, the implementation was then tested by users from the target group. The result was a well-tested website with an, according to the result from the user tests, easy-to-use design.

The result was considered useful by the stakeholders. The website will be used by The Council for Educational Development at the Faculty of Science and Technology at Uppsala University (TUR).

Abstract [sv]

Det finns många olika tekniker och hjälpmedel för att göra undervisning mer modern men det är inte alltid lätt att hitta information om dessa metoder. För att underlätta för lärare i deras undervisning, är detta ett projekt med mål att skapa en hemsida som fungerar som en online-katalog med tekniker och hjälpmedel. Huvudfokuset är att skapa ett gränssnitt till hemsidan för att göra katalogen lättanvänd. Målgruppen är lärare och föreläsare på Uppsala Universitet.

För att hitta den bästa designlösningen till gränssnittet, började vi med att skapa olika användarhistorier och med att bygga en prototyp. Prototypen testades av vänner och familj till projektgruppen. Med kritik från testen byggdes gränssnittet, det implementerade gränssnittet testades sen av personer från målgruppen.

Resultat var en vältestad hemsida som, enligt resultat från användartesterna, hade en design som var lätt att använda. Resultatet ansågs även vara användbart av projektets intressenter. Hemsidan kommer att tas i bruk teknisk-naturvetenskapliga fakultetens universitetspedagogiska råd på Uppsala Universitet (TUR).
