UXmas is back in 2016 to deliver your daily UX Christmas treat.
We’re more excited than Rudolph the reindeer on Christmas Eve that UXmas 2016 has officially begun. Along with Thirst Studios, we’re bringing you a special a UX treat each day in the lead-up to Christmas.
Usability testing is a critical part of the user-centered design process, and comes in many forms. From casual cafeteria studies, to formal lab testing, remote online task-based studies and more. Whether you’re new to this part of UX research, or just need a refresher, Cindy McCracken walks us through the essentials of effective usability tests.
It’s common for newcomers to UX to experience a moment of absolute panic when they discover they need a portfolio. “But how can I build a portfolio when I have no experience?” they ask. The usual online advice is to help a local small business, find a friend with a startup, volunteer for a non-profit, or create a hypothetical project. But the details are often lacking. Lynne Davies bridges the gap by sharing her experience of how she built up her portfolio, and what she learnt along the way.
Cindy McCracken takes to our Slack channel to discuss the nitty gritty details of Usability Testing – like writing effective tasks and questions, observing users, and presenting results.
We’ll dig into recruiting participants effectively, and managing participants when you’re under stress. Join us!
