Update: Ian Franklin guest blog about the event is here
Presented by Ian Franklin (IFOnly Consulting) and Lee Duddell (What Users Do)
In this interactive session the various types of usability testing will be explored. The aim is for people to share experiences of usability testing methods, how they have changed their testing approach and what they want from new testing methods. As technologies evolve and user groups expand it is questionable if usability testing methods are keeping pace. After a very short demonstration of unmoderated remote usability testing people will break into small discussion groups and will be set a usability testing challenge to focus their discussion around methods. In a feedback session people will be asked to share usability testing knowledge and what they want in future
The event will be same time, same place as usual, 6:30 to about 8, at SimpleUsability in the Round Foundry, Leeds.
