Embedding fast feedback loops through rapid usability research & design iterations into the product development team.
To comply with my non-disclosure agreement, I have omitted confidential information in this case study.
All information in this case study is my own and does not necessarily reflect the views of Brightcove.
With three months until the release date for Brightcove Campaign, I was tasked with finding & resolving as many usability problems as possible before they reached our users. I embedded a five-day research & iteration process that allowed us to find problems, test, and iterate quickly. Brightcove Campaign was released in January of 2020.

Case Study: Video Content Type
How do we help users understand & add a Video Content Type?
When users are uploading a video to Campaign, it is necessary to add a video content type to their videos in order to provide analytics related to the Video Benchmark Score — a key value proposition of Campaign.
Users did not understand the function of Video Content Type & were not likely to add the Video Content Type for any purpose other than categorization.
Within in a month of discovering the usability problem, we were able to iterate, validate, and implement a solution prior to the launch date of the product.
