User Experience and Interface Design for a Digital Platform to Support Pet Adoption From Animal Shelters and Animal Rescue Organisations in Europe : magistrsko delo
Špela Bricman, 2023, master's thesis

Abstract: This thesis used design thinking to create a user-friendly digital platform named PetScout for adopting animals from European shelters and rescue groups. We conducted user interviews and an online survey and designed personas, empathy maps, and scenarios to understand user needs. As part of the design process, we defined the platform’s requirements and developed the information architecture. We identified two viable solutions for the project based on research findings: a web-based and a mobile-based solution. To visualize these ideas effectively, we developed prototypes at two different fidelities – low and high fidelity. The prototypes were tested in usability testing using the thinking-aloud method, which measured effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction. The usability testing results showed that our platform is visually appealing, user-friendly, intuitive, and easy to use. A vital finding was the platform’s effectiveness, as high-fidelity prototypes achieved a task completion rate of 100%. Moreover, the concept proved highly efficient since participants, on average, needed 166 seconds to finish vital tasks. Additionally, the SUS score of 97, supported by the positive qualitative user feedback, signifies outstanding user satisfaction and a high level of usability. Finally, this study highlights the importance of knowing and understanding user needs in design, and it provides recommendations to improve usability and potentially increase the number of successful adoptions on similar platforms.

Intelligent user interfaces and their evaluation: a systematic mapping study
Saša Brdnik, Tjaša Heričko, Boštjan Šumak, 2022, original scientific article

Abstract: Intelligent user interfaces (IUI) are driven by the goal of improvement in human–computer interaction (HCI), mainly improving user interfaces’ user experience (UX) or usability with the help of artificial intelligence. The main goal of this study is to find, assess, and synthesize existing state-of-the-art work in the field of IUI with an additional focus on the evaluation of IUI. This study analyzed 211 studies published in the field between 2012 and 2022. Studies are most frequently tied to HCI and SE domains. Definitions of IUI were observed, showing that adaptation, representation, and intelligence are key characteristics associated with IUIs, whereas adaptation, reasoning, and representation are the most commonly used verbs in their description. Evaluation of IUI is mainly conducted with experiments and questionnaires, though usability and UX are not considered together in evaluations. Most evaluations (81% of studies) reported partial or complete improvement in usability or UX. A shortage of evaluation tools, methods, and metrics, tailored for IUI, is noticed. Most often, empirical data collection methods and data sources in IUI evaluation studies are experiment, prototype development, and questionnaire.

Analysis of two diverse nursing records applications : mixed methods approach
Marija Milavec Kapun, Vladislav Rajkovič, Uroš Rajkovič, 2022, original scientific article

Abstract: Introduction: Poor adoption of electronic health records among healthcare workers can diminish their impact. Healthcare informatics solutions development should diligently acknowledge end-user needs.This study compares a user experience and perceived quality of the nursing process integration in two different applications for electronic documentation of the nursing care plan. Both applications were designed and tested in Slovenia. Methods: In the first phase, final year undergraduate nursing students were recruited (n=73) and randomly assigned into two groups. Each group used one of the applications for a duration of five hours. A survey among students was conducted. In the second phase, additional students were recruited (n=40) and invited to participate in qualitative analysis of the unfavourably rated application. Results: The modern, visually improved application was favourably rated by students in terms of all aspects of application usability. However, students reported a significant number of inadequacies regarding the nursing process methodology integration. On the contrary, the students using the poorly rated and visually outdated application reported no such concerns. Qualitative analysis of student reflections identified additional positive features of software design that were not detected in survey results analysis. Conclusion: This study showed that a user-centred approach can be used to compare diverse electronic solutions. Detected discrepancies in findings using qualitative and quantitative analysis show the importance of integrating diverse research approaches for adequate evaluation of software solutions. Furthermore, this study design promotes empowerment of healthcare workers to participate in the development and critical evaluations of software solutions.

User Experience of Croatian National & Nature Parks’ Website – A Comparison : a comparison
Mihaela Franjić, 2022, master's thesis

Abstract: We are not saying that tourism is a dynamic area for no reason, as the COVID–19 pandemic has shown us. Tourism is influenced by many external factors, and one of them is the development of digital technology, which must be monitored in parallel. We are currently in a historical period that is characterized by the fact that without the Internet there is no expansion into other markets. Digital technology covers all pores and activities of modern society, enables new ways for sales, development, distribution in the tourist market, which is full of opportunities and obstacles. Websites have evolved largely because they help, especially small and medium–sized organizations reduce costs, time, and help them market and present themselves to users. In this paper, we will deal with Croatian national and natural parks, which are a national treasure of exceptional importance for Croatian tourism, and which annually attract around 3.5 million tourists. For the first time, in 2017, the parks of Croatia integrated all the parks on one website through the PARCS project, as a basis for better informing users and promoting the parks as a brand on the tourist market. Precisely for this reason, we are interested in how users view the website www.parkovihrvatske.hr, since the appearance of the site has not been renewed since 2017. It is extremely important to know the opinion of potential users, because more than half of the time they plan and book their trip via the Internet with the help of a computer. This is one more reason to check the current situation and opinion of foreign and domestic citizens. The research enabled us to compare respondents, connect expectations and evaluations, and at the end provide an additional opinion of the respondents. In order to improve and improve the user experience according to the respondents, the website should work on its design, security, include all park offers together with tickets and update its information. Based on the analysis, we will try to present guidelines for upgrading the website if they want to be trendy, competitive and expand into the tourist market overwhelmed by digital transformation.

User experience with security elements in internet and mobile banking
Aleksandra Svilar, Jože Zupančič, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: Background/Purpose: Maintaining a balance between security and a positive user experience in mobile and Internet banking is becoming increasingly difficult for the providers of banking services. The goal of our research is to analyse user opinions about the current situation: how users perceive security and how the authentication methods they are using affect user experience. Methodology: Data were collected using an online survey among the users of 15 banks operating in Slovenia, and statistical methods were applied to analyse them. Results of the users’ study were evaluated and commented by a limited number of interviewed banking security experts. Results: The results indicate that the use of mobile banking in Slovenia is relatively low, as only 30 percent of respondents use mobile banking along with Internet banking. Slovenian users perceive security to be the most important factor in mobile and online banking, closely followed by reliability. We also verified whether the users knew which authentication methods they were using: 69% of respondents selected the correct authentication method. The opinion of 88% of respondents was that authentication methods do not limit them when using mobile and Internet banking. Results of the study of user’s opinions did not surprise the experts, although experts’ views about the balance between security and usability diverged considerably. Conclusion: Our results indicate that, in Slovenia, users of the Internet and mobile banking services regard security to be the most important element in mobile or Internet banking and find user experience less important while they absolutely do want products that are easy to use.

Gamification: Improvement of the user experience in ubiquitous applications for health and well-being of people
Nenad Naranđa, 2017, master's thesis

Abstract: The goal of this work was to explore gamification in the healthcare domain with regards to fitness in order to understand how and which gamification mechanics can improve user experience in ubiquitous applications. This possible influence was tested conducting a survey in which the participants evaluated first the fitness application 30 Day Fit Challenge Workout and then its impact on their motivation. The results showed that the gamification mechanics did increase motivation (progression the most significantly, achievements the least), and therefore improved the user experience. Female participants felt more motivated than male ones.

Goran Ramljak, 2014, master's thesis

Abstract: Glavni cilj magistrske naloge je raziskati področje uporabniške izkušnje na splošno in še posebej v maloprodajni industriji. Magistrsko delo temeljito raziskuje nove tehnologije in študije primerov njihove uporabe. Glede na široko področje raziskovanja, smo se osredotočili na sodobne brezžične tehnologije, kot je Bluetooth LE. V okviru raziskave, smo preučiti tudi mentalne modele kupcev, ki lahko pomembno vplivajo na uporabo novih tehnologij. Naša osnovna hipoteza je, da bo uporaba novih tehnologij izboljšajo uporabniško izkušnjo v trgovinah in da bodo uporabniki lahko učinkoviteje porabili svoj čas v trgovini. • H1: Vedenje uporabnikov v javnih prostorih (trgovinah) je odvisno od podatkov v fizičnih in elektronski okoljih, ki ga obkrožajo. Elektronska okolja postavljajo kontekst za interakcijo med ljudmi in računalniškimi storitvami. • H2: Atmosfera v trgovinah vpliva na način dojemanja izdelkov. Svetla in zanimivejša trgovina daje uporabniku občutek, da gre za trgovino s kakovostnimi izdelki. Interaktivni elementi, kot so prikazovalniki, mobilne aplikacije z nadgrajeno resničnostjo, ipd. spodbujajo raziskovanje in naredijo izdelke bolj atraktivne.
