Making it Easy

Folks,

Today am planning to share the "Key principles of user centred design". They are not 'hard-and-fast' and can be tailored to suit specific interaction needs.

Key principles of user centred design:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Design for the users and their tasks
2. Be consistent
3. Use simple and natural dialogue
4. Reduce unnecessary mental effort by the user
5. Provide adequate feedback
6. Provide adequate navigation mechanisms
7. Let the user drive
8. Present information clearly
9. Be helpful
10. Reduce errors

Feel free to add in more points if you feel its relevant here.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cheers
