Hcd and design | Computer Science homework help


Imagine that your Professor is the director of a non-profit animal rights agency that you are trying to convince to hire you, based on your deep understanding of HCD issues. 

Professor Wirth is interesting in hiring you to create an cutting-edge digital system to streamline rescue pet adoption. As part of the services for which he is paying you $300/hour, he has asked you to do a competitive analysis of pet adoption services from apps and websites. He wants to be sure that his organization’s digital service and app are cutting edge and emotionally engaging  Because he has metrics that speak to the high rate of possible abandonment of use of the agency’s existing website, he is also very interested in ensuring that any new solution doesn’t replicate the usability mistakes and issues of human-centered understanding that is obvious in his competitors’ service offerings; mistakes and issues which apparently alienate potential adopters. 

Along with employing Schneiderman’s 8 Golden Rules of usability to guide your comparative analysis of two pet adoption websites or apps of your choice, your usability report will be expected to include conceptual language drawn from the course readings. You should also demonstrate an understanding of all relevant opportunities and challenges, both within the client’s industry and around digital services design, delivery, and maintenance. Therefore, it would be advantageous to you to think of this project as one important way of showing Professor Wirth that you have kept up with your review of the course content.
