Usability Testing

Do-it-yourself user tests: Plan, conduct, and analyze your own studies, using in-person, remote, or online methods

Watching users try to accomplish tasks on your site is the most effective and efficient way to uncover usability problems. This course will empower you to conduct quick and cheap usability tests throughout the project lifecycle, without having to set up an official lab. Learn the benefits of traditional user testing techniques and online testing tools. You will learn how to facilitate sessions, develop test plans, analyze data, and present the findings.

This course is ideal for people who are new to user testing or have some user testing experience, but no formal training.

"Nuts and bolts information about how to perform user testing will be extremely valuable in our redesign process."
