Bucket: The Goal Setting Website
To help users keep track of their goals by using an online platform we designed called 'Bucket'.
The proposed project is inspired by the idea of accomplishing the goals from one’s ‘Bucket List’, which is why the researchers have chosen the name ‘Bucket’. The project aims to undertake elements of Ouweneel, Le Blanc and Schaufeli’s (2013) research in order to improve the website, and thus users’ goal setting and progress reports. An online explore feed will be accessible to all users of the website. The explore feed will show images of goals, goal progression, and sub goal achievement from users’ profiles that are similar to their own. These images are interactive and can link the user to other user’s online profile, where the progress and sub-goals can be viewed and learned from. By involving an interactive online explore feed, the user can view pictures and videos on the website that illustrate goal progression and attainment in order to educate and motivate the user. This website will allow users to record their progress and to connect with others online.
using the SMART principle of goal setting, based on psycholgoical research, will encourage users to keep track of their progress through the online medium of 'Bucket'.
