Developing sexual health software incorporating user feedback : A British experience.
This article describes an interactive prototyping model for development of four computer software modules for British youth on sexual issues.
An iterative cycle of development, user review and feedback, and subsequent modification and retesting was used with approximately 150 young adults, with particular attention to presentation style, screen design, usability, relevance of material, enjoyment, and learning.
The software was designed to be realistically accommodated in school settings, to be used as a reference tool by students working alone or in a group teaching situation.
Feedback from youth and adults attests to the feasibility of development, implementation, and instructional usefulness.
Interactive prototyping proved essential in the face of skepticism from teachers concerning young people's information needs and acceptance of a computerized educational approach.
