What do you do?I am a teacher and the technology coordinator at Lincoln Lutheran Middle/High School. We are a relatively small school with about 400 students in grades 6 - 12. I teach classes like: programming, video editing, website design and multimedia applications. I am also in charge of our school website and making sure that computer related things work.
How do you use Clue to help you do what you do?
Over the past summer we launched a new version of our school website: (you can view the older version of the site). This was the culmination of a nearly 2 year long process. We didn't have a lot of money to spend on our redesign, so we used many free online tools for things like wireframing and card sorting.
Clue provides useful feedback for a current design. I was able to get some very useful feedback on people's initial impression of our new site in a very short period of time.
How do the students use Clue?
I currently have a little over 30 students putting the finishing touches on websites that they have made as part of our Multimedia Applications class. Once they are a little closer to completion, I will have them use Clue to quickly gather feedback from their classmates (and anyone else that they care to get feedback from) on the initial impression that their websites make.
What is your favorite part about Clue?
I was amazed at how quick and easy it was to setup and how easy it was for people to complete the "survey." The surveys were interesting enough to do that I found myself doing about a dozen for other people.
A mistake I made was to send the survey to my own faculty. They were too familiar with the website, and so their "initial impressions" were very different from what people new to the website saw. If I had to do over again, I think I would run two different tests, one for people who were familiar with our school and one for people who were not.
