Firstly, what is the ‘context of use’?

It’s an obvious thing to say but people don’t live in a vacuum; they’re subject to all sorts of influences which can affect their experience of using products.

These influences can come from a variety of sources, e.g.:

  • The physical environment (e.g. ambient temperature and light levels)
  • Social settings (e.g. are they working alone or in a team? What are the social norms?)
  • The technical environment (e.g. is WiFi available?)
  • Commercial and legal requirements (e.g. what procedures have to be followed?)

All of the things that affect someone’s usage of a product can be defined as the ‘context of use’.

10 tips on writing crisp clear content

Do you ever need to write step-by-step instructions on how to do something? Are you struggling to write error messages that accurately describe the error and how to fix it?

Clear, well-structured content makes for a good user experience. If content’s badly written or badly structured, it lets down your design and the user experience suffers. People won’t be able to do what they came to your site to do.
