Achieving User Satisfaction in Content Management Systems / Academic
Content management systems (CMS) allow companies to maintain their website themselves through a web browser interface. What happens when an unusable or poorly implemented CMS is used on a daily basis by the same team of people, with the pressures and deadlines imposed by a commercial environment?
As part of my masters in Human-Computer Interaction, my thesis Achieving User Satisfaction in Content Management Systems investigates the factors by which user satisfaction can be achieved in Content Management Systems designed for long-term repetitive use. I conducted a User-Centred Design (UCD) process to redesign/redevelop an existing CMS to be tailored to its users and reported my findings.
