Video: training extract – the VPTCS model, by Elie Sloïm, CEO and founder

(Video transcript)
This is the VPTCS model, which means Visibility Perception Technical Content and Services. This model reads in chronological order relating to three major phases:
Before, during and after the user visits the website.
With this model, you are not only interested in the interface but in the user experience as a whole. The UI or user interface is covered by the three central sections of the model. Perception Technical and Content. Visibility leads us to take an interest in why and how the user arrived .
But that is not enough. You also have to understand why he’s coming and what he wants to take with him when he leaves. Then we have to look at the services part. This model allows you to understand part of the UX and above all, it allows you to explain simply the difference between UX and UI and that is very important.
The vptcs model led to the birth of the Opquast best practices. We have created discussion forums which are asked to discuss each rule to establish a consensus list of rules. We have over 200 best practices they are widely used by web professionals and have a very long lifespan.
