One of the goals of the whiteboard is to share tools, methods, guides -- anything we can -- to help people better understand and apply human-centered design. The team at IDEO.org launched Design Kit today -- a "refresh" of its HCD Connect platform launched in 2011.
Design Kit offers 50 methods and case-studies to explain the various aspects of human-centered design. There is also a toolkit for those interested in learning more and applying it to their own projects. The Design Kit also includes seven videos on various aspects of human-centered design. Here's one, for example, of IDEO and d.school founder and Stanford Engineering professor David Kelley on creative confidence. And, yes, I got a chance to talk about one of my new favorite topics: empathy. The interview, surprisingly, stretched me, and helped me further solidify my own understanding of how empathy fits into the larger quilt of human-centered design methods and mindsets.
As always, we'd love to hear your feedback! Let us know in the comments below.
