Abstract [en]

The last few years, giant companies like Facebook and Google have taken over the publishing market by attracting both advertisers and users to their platforms. This has caused smaller news publishers to lose their influence and their independence in the industry. To combat this trend, Newsadoo is on a mission to establish a collaborative news platform that benefits everyone involved. To help fulfill the company’s vision, the platform’s content has to be easily moderated by both Newsadoo and its partners to make sure that it satisfies the users’ needs.

This master thesis concerns the design and implementation of a new solution for Newsadoo’s administrative portal, which will allow both internal administrators and external partners to moderate the content in Newsadoo’s main product. The work was done on site at Newsadoo’s office in Linz, Austria, during the fall term of 2019.

The project progressed in bi-weekly sprints based on the principles of Lean UX, which were comprised of methods common to projects revolving around interface design and development. These were methods like user flows, site architecture mapping, wireframing, and different forms of testing and evaluation.

The project resulted in Newsadoo Backoffice, a user interface with focus on accessibility and usability that facilitates easy moderation of Newsadoo’s main product. Newsadoo Backoffice is also a potential selling point for the company when trying to find new publishing partners to collaborate with, as this new solution also provides partners with useful data and knowledge on their own company’s performance.

Abstract [sv]

De senaste åren har stora företag som Facebook och Google tagit över publiceringsmarknaden genom att locka både annonsörer och användare till sina plattformar. Detta har fått mindre nyhetspublicerare att förlora sitt inflytande och sin självständighet i branschen. För att bekämpa denna trend har Newsadoo försökt etablera en nyhetsplattform där alla inblandade parter kan samarbeta och hjälpa varandra. För att uppfylla företagets vision måste plattformens innehåll lätt kunna modereras av både Newsadoo och dess partners för att se till att plattformen uppfyller användarnas behov och förväntningar.

Detta examensarbete avser design och implementering av en ny lösning för Newsadoos administrativa portal, som gör att båda interna administratörer samt externa partners kan moderera innehållet i Newsadoos huvudprodukt. Arbetet utfördes på Newsadoos kontor i Linz, Österrike, under höstterminen 2019.

Projektet utfördes i två veckor långa sprints baserade på principerna för Lean UX, som bestod av vanliga metoder för projekt som kretsar runt design och utveckling av användargränssnitt. Dessa var metoder som användarflöden, kartläggning av webbplatsarkitektur, wireframing samt olika former av tester och utvärderingar.

Projektet resulterade i Newsadoo Backoffice—ett användargränssnitt med fokus på tillgänglighet och användbarhet som underlättar moderering av Newsadoos nyhetsplattform. Newsadoo Backoffice resulterade även i ett potentiellt försäljningsargument som Newsadoo kan använda när man försöker hitta nya partners och investerare att samarbeta med, eftersom denna nya lösning exempelvis även ger partners användbar data och kunskap om sina egna artiklars prestanda på plattformen.
