This project was part of a course in rapid prototyping and lean UX method.

Each student had a group interview with the stakeholders and the rest of the class, then completed the project on their own following rapid prototyping methods.

Stakeholder Feedback

Feedback for Katie:

  • To us, she was the best thought out and easiest to use.  Lots of “out of the box” ideas.

  • Alerts for Family Members – great idea

  • *Great Disclaimer for ADA Passengers* - best we saw, will probably be reaching out for some in-depth conversations with her specifically on this topic

  • First Available – what a concept?? We all loved it

  • Again, overall, we would give her the best!
