The first MENA Design Research Center project, which was a cultural probe kit called Konfikit (2010), is now published in the globally acclaimed 2nd edition of the book ‘Observing the User Experience: A Practitioner’s Guide to User Research’. The 600- page text book is written by Elizabeth Goodman, Mike Kuniavsky, and Andrea Moed, and published by Morgan Kaufmann Publishers (an imprint of Elsevier).
Excerpt from Back Cover: Observing the User Experience is a groundbreaking, comprehensive resource for user experience research. For over a decade, it has helped readers better understand what their users want and need from their products and whether users will be able to use what they’ve created. This second edition improves upon a classic, adding new methods and approaches to meet today’s challenging and diverse research requirements.
