UIETips: Ultra-Contextual Design

Jared Spool

May 6th, 2015

In today’s UIEtips, we’re happy to publish an article on Contextual Design from Abi Jones.

If you’re trying to figure out whether sensor-informed context is right for you and your users, join Abi on May 14, when she presents the next virtual seminar, Explore the Possibilities of Ultra-Contextual Design. During Abi’s seminar she’ll cover how journey maps help make the London Underground accessible to visually impaired people, the UX of mountain rescues, methods for optimizing sensor permission requests, and a taxonomy for designing context-­aware systems.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

The first step in creating a context­-aware system is understanding the context for use. There are two levels for contextual understanding, the broad context for the user journey and the ultra­-contextual aspects of each touchpoint within the journey.
