A question that I have about our design is if our design is too different from what the students are used to? We redesigned the application for registering for classes so everything is on one screen. Students no longer have to first search what class they want and then go to the next screen, pick the time they want, and then start the process over again. The old method was slow, but it was clear what the next step was. In our system I am concerned that students will not know where to begin.
I hope that when I am observing the tests of the prototype students know to use the search button first and then select the class that appears to the right. I expect the calendar feature to be easy to understand. My question will be answered if the users can register for a class without having any questions on what to do first.
