A Donut for Your Thoughts: Best Practices for Usability Testing
The first step in creating change is to take a closer look at what’s working well, what isn’t, & what changes will have the greatest impact. We will discuss usability testing best practices, efficient & low cost testing tools, & effective strategies for communicating needed changes. The Marriott Library houses the University of Utah’s Usability Lab, giving our User Experience & Web Development team a unique perspective to offer support & training while also learning from diverse endeavors.
