Knowledge workers spend most of their time searching for information. They work from different places such as home offices and airport lounges. They are people who think to make a living such as nurses, teaches, students, computer analysts, architects and many others. They are mostly dependant on information technology with the increase in business demands. This is because information technology makes their work easier.
The different personas have different interests and job descriptions. This brings a difference in the type of system software that would be suitable for each user. There different responsibilities make them have personalized needs. Therefore, it would be hard to find general software that could suit all the user’s needs.
For instance, the needs of the learner are different from those of the helper, solver and the networker. This means that they would need different information systems that would work for the different individual needs. One similarity with all the users is that they are constantly searching for information hence they would need system software that is fast.
The suitable persona for the system that I would like to design would be the student. This is because the system has good graphics and is fast hence would be efficient for the student. The system software has tools that are useful for all students.
Working with personas in a human computer interaction project is important. This is because it enables the designing of useful software systems as the users interests are considered when making the designs. This makes the system a good package for the intended user.
