Abstract

The goal of our project with Aid to Artisans was to enhance their nascent web platform, Aid to ArtisansU, by increasing its functionality and user base. We interviewed artisans from seven countries and evaluated website analytics to understand site usage and gain insight into the ideal web-platform for craftspeople. In addition, we created a tutorial video and a course on importing, observed an immediate increase in user ship, and provided recommendations for future projects with Aid to ArtisansU.
