Subject: Re: [IxDA] Auto Play: Need Research to Back Up Why It's Bad for User Experience
IMHO, I don't think "trying to teach people" is a best attitude. Whether a
design element work or not really depends on the context. I can cite some
auto play feature in many websites that do work, such as hulu, surveymonkey,
mailchimp; and I also experienced the failure in my own usability testing
that participants felt lost and didn't know what happened with the auto play.
So it really depends on how you design and present it, context, audiences,
and I would say maybe a good way might be to pull some users, even in your
own organization to do a quick and dirty user testing with your prototype.
Decision making on data is better than opinion.
