Interaction Design -Week 1

I think the most striking part of this week was related to user journeys. I hadn't done a user journey per se so it was a new experience.  I found it much more time consuming than I had imagined.  I did however find it useful in really making me connect the functionality of the application to the needs of the user, and really understand how each would likely be using the app.  Obviously in a new class like this there are going to be bumps in the road, so that was no surprise, but I'm a big believer in using the right tool for the job, so I'm glad that we were allowed to use something that worked before for the context.
