The mHealth Design Toolkit is a collection of insights, tools and key principles to increase adoption and customer uptake of mobile health services by involving end-users in the service development process.
mHealth services have faced challenges in attaining scale and adoption. In many cases, these challenges can be overcome by adopting a user-centric design approach. Developed in partnership with frog, this toolkit provides guidance on how to bring end-users into service development process, helping mHealth providers to build services that truly resonate with their end-users.
The Design Thinking for Educators Toolkit gives teachers the tools and methods they need to apply design thinking—discovery, interpretation, ideation, experimentation and evolution—in real-world scenarios.
IDEO designers have been using similar processes, methods, and tools for years in tackling some dauntingly complex challenges. More often than not, they experienced how design thinking helps to get to the next step.
In 2009, IDEO designed and launched the HCD Toolkit, a first-of-its-kind book that laid out how and why human-centered design can impact the social sector. In short order, a community of designers, entrepreneurs, and social sector innovators embraced it, buying and downloading over 150,000 copies.
About the resource: At IDEO.org, part of their mission is to spread human-centered design to social sector practitioners around the world. The Field Guide to Human-Centered Design reveals our process with the key mindsets that underpin how and why we think about design for the social sector, 57 clear-to-use design methods for new and experienced practitioners, and from-the-field case studies of human-centered design in action. The Field Guide has everything you need to understand the people you’re designing for, to have more effective brainstorms, to prototype your ideas, and to ultimately arrive at more creative solutions.
