Scott Burns & Petra Gulicher - Rethinking UGC at the ABC

UX Australia 2021 DAY 4

Gathering user generated content (UGC) has never been easier. But learning how to manage and convert this data into measurable value is another thing. Central to the ABC’s mission is to inform, entertain, and reflect the cultural diversity of the Australian community. UGC is one way of achieving this, but it requires a hybrid UX/product/tech/journalistic approach. Working in a multi-disciplinary environment comes with its own complexities, but when pulled off has high rewards. In this session we unpack the techniques we are using, the lessons we are learning along the way, and what comes next for UGC at the ABC.

  25. UXA21 – Rethinking UGC at the ABC A human story

    A numbers story In 2020… A mother explains how her son, who has special needs, feels when he can get involved from the comfort of his own home and the profound impact that can have. 😃 “He’s not just invested as a viewer, he thinks he’s part of the family” Mum also explained the delicate situation when her son discovered he was not included in the final outcome and she had to explain why. She expected an email whatever the result in order to set expectations. 😔 “I want open communication lines… When it’s directly from the source he’s more accepting of things” The ABC received an estimated 338 860 direct submissions and collaborative contributions from the Australian public (News investigations, Bluey dance video etc) The ABC received approx 98 550 direct requests for help from the Australian public (connecting their smart TV, logging into the News App etc) All of these people received a response within 30 days. That’s a 100% response rate An estimated 52,655 of these people received a response. That’s a 15.5% response rate 😃 😔
