Speakers: Stephen Pashby & David Minton – At it’s most basic, usability is about insuring something, such as a website, works well. Despite the understood importance, many organizations believe usability testing is too expensive and time consuming to fit their budget and schedule. We’ll show how usability tests can be performed both quickly and inexpensively using popular DIY usability techniques. We will cover both analog and online tools for user surveys, card sorting, tree testing, first click testing, and user testing.
