Having found a fun site of bad UX design, someone else followed me who had the UX Drinking Game site. And it made me think maybe we need an LX Drinking Game. So I started tweeting out some drinking game rules. I encourage you to join in with the hashtag #LXDrinkingGame.
So, my first list of ‘drink’ cues is:
if they ask for a pre-test/post-test design
if the alternatives to the right answer are so silly or obvious that you don‘t need to know anything
if the course objectives are â€˜know‘ or â€˜understand‘
if someone says â€˜use a click to see more‘
if someone says, use an avatar because people like it
if someone comes in and says “we need a course for thisâ€
if someone dumps PDFs and/or PPTs on you and expects a course in a few days
if all they‘re measuring is cost/time/seat
So, what other rules do we need? Tweets (again, #LXDrinkingGame) or comments welcome ;).
