Hi! I'm Teddy Billings. Welcome to my site! On here I have various projects, and information about myself. I am currently a Junior Information Science Major at Cornell University with a minor in Communications and Game Design. My current focus is Human Computer Interactions, and I plan on graduation in May of 2017.
The best way to reach me is by email. A web-form to send emails is soon to come!
My current specialization in the Information Science Major is Human Computer Interactions. I have worked on many different applications and taken many different classes to help enhance my understanding of the user
NavGator is a mobile application prototype that I made for my Human Computer Interaction class at Cornell. I took the class my Fall semester of my Junior Year (2015). The goal of the class was to submit our project to the CHI student design competition. Overall, the project took several months to complete.
The first phase of this project focused on gaining information from our users. The users that we decided to design for were users with mobility impairments (people who use crutches, wheelechairs and boots). In the first iteration of the design process, we found out that users wanted a solution to 4 main problems:
1. They wanted a way to get to class faster.
2. They wanted to be able to use the bus and CULift system more efficiently.
3. They needed a way to find out how to avoid hazardous areas.
4. They wanted to be able to know where accessability points were on campus.
We then began to brainstorm different ideas of how we wanted to solve these problems. We developed many different paper prototypes. We thought of different features and ways to solve the problems our users were facing. After many different iterations of the paper prototype, we finally came up with something I was happy with. You can view it here
We went back to our users for more user testing. After conduting several interviews, and almost 300 different heuristic evaluations, we were finally ready to present the final project. The link is below
Many of the classes I have taken at cornell have provided me with ample programming experience. Below is a list of projects and their corresponding classes:
