Assignment for this week:
Behavior Design Challenge Round 2.
Based on what you learned today, I now want you to identify as many different behaviors as you can that you required in your Behavior Design Challenge. Create a taxonomy of those behaviors according to the Fogg Behavior Grid in some visual way. Then analyze the approach you’re taking for designing each of those behaviors to occur. What is the sequence of behaviors you need to occur to trigger the specific target behavior? Is there a hot trigger in place for each? What components of ability are helping/hurting the behavior from occurring? Is there sufficient motivation and can you identify which components of motivation (anticipation, sensation, belonging) that your are tapping into?
Document your taxonomy of behaviors. Based on what you learned from the first trial and observations of your classmates experiments in class on their blog postings, which behaviors should you modify, add, delete? How can you simplify the trial?
Re-run your experiment with the feedback from class. Read the chapters from Pryor’s book and the 8-step design process from Fogg before you re-design and re-run your experiment.
Deliverable details: Create a title for your experiment round 2 and post your results to the blog either as a post or a link to your blog’s post.
