(Note: I tried to submitting this to NGAlphas but it never went through. So it's here)
This is a project for a interface/usability class.
It has limited functionality and works similar to a point and click adventure... an adventure in software!
The goal of shapes is to introduce middle school age children to limited scripting/programming in an artistic (visual) context. It is a sort of feature limited mashup of a vector graphics program like Illustrator and an introductory programming environment like Processing.
Using this wireframe you will be led through three interactive tutorials where you manipulate some graphics in a variety of ways.
The goal of this specific iteration is to gather feedback from users. PLEASE FILL OUT THE QUESTIONNAIRE. I am really interested in your answers! It will help me make better informed decisions in my design process.
This study is focused on usability (user flow, cognitive ergonomics etc.) as such the fine points of the interface's aesthetics are not a concern.
